Hi, Phone numbers are displayed in my app as (555) 555-6676. I figured out how to use regular expressions to verify if it's in the correct format, but now I have to save the phone numbers as 5555556676 in the database. What would be the best way to strip the extra characters from my string? I tried myPhoneString.replace( '(', '' ); but it will not accept empty character literals... Thanks, Marie

oops, I just found out that I can also use regexp to remove the offending characters. Marie
