Hmm... I think you are referring to matching the expression in a text field.

Actually, the RegEx.IsMatch() function (in .NET) only returns True/False if the pattern is found in the specified text. In my case, I'm not doing a search. I'm only checking to see if the pattern exists. That's probly why I can get away with {2} or {2,} in this case.

I know you're doing a match. I was describing what the RegExp does behind the scenes at each stage. The second part where it matches AxxBxxC was a mistake because I forgot about the ungreediness. I'll edit it out.

Regular Expressions are confusing things. ;)

Attached is an HTML/JavaScript version of the validation routines I've been working on.
