Bug: ValidateFilingText.py is erroneously flagging caret characters as disallowed

 The ValidateFilingText code is flagging an unencoded caret character (^) as a disallowed character in a SEC document, and flagging it with error code EFM.5.02.01.01 (“Disallowed character 'X' (Y) in file…”).  An unecoded caret characters is allowed in SEC documents.  The docCheckPattern variable’s declaration on line 19 should be modified to allow a caret character along with the other non-alphanumeric characters that are allowed.
