trimmed postal codes  XML

I noticed the UK postal codes have the last digits after the space trimmed off them (like 'DA9 9BA' is 'DA9'), and I believe canada is similiar. I need to know which countries have abbreviated postal codes so I can trim that postal code before searching the postal code database. Is there a list of countries with their post code modifications?

thanks!

For Canada and the the UK we only have the first letters of the postal codes since the full codes are not freely available. The list is here :
