I've always been aware of several quirks in NameClean and, of course there will likely be more worth highlighting for development with other internation name styles. So I decided to take some time to illustrate these quirks and also make a few observations so this valuable utility can be improved in the future.

 

All these problems were exhibited through single selection of rules, when multiple selections are made the logic gets a bit more confused presenting funny results.

And a few observations of very useful existing functionality;
