Yes Michael, that makes sense, though testing shows that as unnecessary in this simple case.

<xsl:template
match="p[matches(normalize-space(), '^[the quick] |

that matches either


a string that starts with one of the letters t h e ' ' q u i c k
followed by a space.

or string that contains
a space followed by one of the letters  b r o w n f x




the second clause should be


or string that contains a space followed by one of the letters b r o w n ' ' f x

Although you can't actually match a space followed by another space in
this context as you have used normalize-space on the input.
