I have some mod-rewrite lines that are dependent upon version limitations.

[6-9]\.

Given the addition of IE 10 I need to modify them.

Should I just change this to:

([6-9]|10)\.

TIA

I guess since nobody replied, I must have been having a "duh moment" in inquiring about something so simple ;)

Hey, totally reasonable question. I used to have a line that said:
BrowserMatch "MSIE [1-4]" keep_out

Can you spot the problem? :) After one unintended lockout I hastily changed it to

"MSIE [1-4]\."

with trailing period. I've got some further bits in mod_rewrite that address MSIE 5 and 6. (Mac over 5.2: unequivocal robot. Otherwise, look more closely at circumstances.)

You could say (\d\d|[6-9])\. and then you'd be covered forever. Or at least for a longish time.
