Soundex and Reverse Soundex

Soundex is an algorithm used primarily for genealogy name algorithms.  It is probably the most simple of these algorithms but it can still be helpful.  I have started working on some of the phonetic algorithms and decided to share my soundex and reverse soundex code in the Adobe Cookbook.  You can find my post at I plan on implementing some of the other algorithms and making it open source.  I will post a link to the source when I get a little further along.
