[thelist] [php] regexp help

one day I'm going to buy that OReilly book, but until then:

Can someone tell me why this check:

if(preg_match("/^[a-zA-Z0-9 -\']+$/i", $value))
   {$response['name'] = true;}
else {$response['name'] = false;}

evaluates to true when $value is something like 'test ^%' - which should 
return false?
