Thanks for the reply.
I want to know how to include char "-" i.e a dash . I want to test for it.
eg: COSC-3006.
I should be able to test that string as valid.
Also is there a way in which the form validation fails but when the user goes back to 
the same form its previous values are retained.
eg: Suppose the user enters its name, age and phone number.
     But the phone number is wrongly entered. Then he goes back, the old values should 
still be displayed. Only the phone number should be cleared.
Also how to program for such a back button.
In what I have done is simply called the previous form, so it clears all the values.
Any help in appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

/^[A-Za-z\s]+$/ would be a better way of putting it.
however, \s would match tabs (also CR and/or LF in some regex engines).

to only alpha or space, this would work best:
/^[A-Za-z ]+$/
