>From a postal point of view, the result of a lookup on the Royal Mail
website is the best way of checking a postcode and the return from DA10
1AZ is longer than some results and is what Steve listed originally. If
we can actually use that view of the data is a little grey, but one can
at least check where one is shipping something is correct. I'm sure
manually top level sorting post, the post person will be looking at the
postal town rather than the postcode, but on automated machines then
only the name and postcode are relevant.
