Hi,

I'm in need of a regular expression to meet the following formatting rules:

1. The length of the input must be bigger than 0 and less/equal to 14.
2. Only letters 'a' to 'z', '-' (dash) and ' ' (space) are allowed.
3. The '-' and ' ' letters must be entered.
4. The '-' or the ' ' letter must not be either the first or last letter entered.
5. '-' must not be the immediate neighbour or adjacent to a ' '.
6. '-' or ' ' must no be the immediate neighbour of itself.

I am not very familiar with JavaScript or the RegExp function and therefore any help in constructing the needed code is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Emile

I think it might have to be done in multiple parts and not in one statement....

I will play with it this morning...
