> What's the difference between "ItemC*" and "(ItemC)*"?
the () is a sequence or choice so you could have for example
(ItemC|ItemD)* : one or more of C or D
(ItemC,ItemD)* : one or more copies of the sequence C D
but if there's only one thing in the () then they are not doing
anything (in particular they are not doing any harm:-)
