This wants the <stripReserved> function, which is not here!

Also, this validEmail is required by validURL, which is not mentioned in the validURL post

Awesome function! But the _ValidTopLevelDomains is many moons ago. Here is the more updated list:
https://data.iana.org/TLD/tlds-alpha-by-domain.txt

And here is the function to convert the list:

Substitute ( $$TLDs ; [" "; Quote(¶)]; ["\"" ; "" ])

// put the top lebel domain list in $$TLDs
