DAVOUD TOHIDY noted ... >>What I am interested in is receiving only the Alphabetical text without anything extra from the user. Hi Davoud, IIRC your example code dealt with a 'name' field, didn't it? Just pointing out that there are quite a few folks around the world who feel that the correct alphabetical text to represent their name may include a single quotation mark ... or any number of interesting diacritical accent marks above (or below) a character ... or even, perhaps, some more challenging alphabetical characters such as an Icelandic thorn or a German eszett. ... and we wouldn't want to antagonize a potentially important customer by butchering their name, now would we?
