Standard 2 of 5 is a self-checking numeric-only barcode. Unlike Interleaved 2 of 5, all
of the information is encoded in the bars; the spaces are fixed width and are used only to
separate the bars. Standard 2 of 5 is used primarily for warehouse sorting, photo
finishing, and airline ticket marking.
