That's definitely the best one, but not all. Much less dramatic examples:
A01881 - a patent DNA sequence containing an "l" - probably
the key to the patent :)
A04243 - a patent peptide sequence "aagrripgx" which might
slip through some automated protein vs. nucleic acid
sequence checkers - looks like DNA except for the p and i
Sure did discover how tolerant my software was to unrecognized
symbols when we installed EMBL 35 :)
