I believe it was the 'M' that was thought to have this effect. A rule is
made from a set of commands that fit on a single line. As far as I know
there is no way to transfer to the next line.

so0QMsa4Q would be better written:

/o /a so0 sa4

Which is perhaps clearer. In order to transform slyfox into SlyF0x, you

/o T0 Q so0

Which will reject words without "o"s, toggle the first letter and
replace all 'o' by '0'. It will also reject words that do not start with
a letter (because the first character will not be toggled).
