you don't have to put asterisks around your sentences. In fact, it makes
them harder to read and understand.

domain name element must not start with a dash.

xrm-eu is ine, is fine, xmr.-eu is invalid.

see rfc 1034 section 3.5.

<domain> ::= <subdomain> | " "

<subdomain> ::= <label> | <subdomain> "." <label>

<label> ::= <letter> [ [ <ldh-str> ] <let-dig> ]

there are nameservers who do not enforce the requirement above.
