{{str letter}} returns 0
{{str letter|}} returns 0
{{str letter| }} returns 0

The count is interrupted by numbers, symbols, and punctuation:

{{str letter|12345}} returns 0
{{str letter|abcdef?}} returns 6
{{str letter|abc def}} returns 3
{{str letter|ABcD123}} returns 4
{{str letter|abc, def}} returns 3
