Many Rosetta Code tasks deal with (character) strings, whether that includes character strings that happen to be numeric (that is, decimal digits, or possibly in other bases).
I tried to include Rosetta Code tasks that deal with character strings that included numeric digits, even though some (or maybe most) Rosetta Code language examples/entries may have elected to treat/handle the character string as numeric digits (i.e., as a number). The inclusion should probably include sequences that are, in fact, sequences of various flavors of character strings, whether or not most of the strings deal with the numeric part of a string.
Two related tasks for the strings template could be:
Another class of related tasks would be various forms of encryption/decryption and encoding/decoding. -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 22:48, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
I think it looks better without the ; on each sub-heading, but I'll not argue about it. --Pete Lomax (talk) 13:26, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

Range_modifications possibly, in Remove / replace, maybe? --Pete Lomax (talk) 23:01, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
I think we need a new section for "Tedious, pointless, and unimaginative dictionary tasks"... --Pete Lomax (talk) 19:55, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
