Hi all,

I am not much aware about regular expressions .

I need to restrict user input of a text box to alphabets only

but it may contain space or a dot in beteween lettes .

So how do i write the <var-value> in the validation.xml

Also can anyone paste me a good link where i can study all the regular expressions

Please help.
