Best way to validate Phone Number and Email???

Can someone please post some code examples(javascript) that show how to validate a phone number.  I only want digits(example: 1231231234 NOT 123-123-1234).  If you know of a way to allow international numbers as well that would be great (example this is a phone number from Europe: Phone: +44 20 8390 xxxx).   I am not sure if there is a way to show that it is a USA number or a foreign number, but if it is possible that would be great.

Also what is the best way to check that a person typed in a valid email address(Example. test@aol.com NOT test@aol or whatever).

Thanks

try this
<script>
function formIsNumeric(v) {

      v = v.replace(/\s+$|^\s*/gi, "");
      isNum = new RegExp ("[^0-9]");
      if (isNum.test(v)) {
            alert('Wrong')
      }
}

</script>

<form name="f">
<input type="text" name="t">
<input type="button" value="click here" onClick="formIsNumeric(f.t.value)">
</form>

here is the email validation script
function isEmail (v) {
      var email = /^[a-zA-Z0-9._-]+@([a-zA-Z0-9.-]+\.)+[a-zA-Z0-9.-]{2,4}$/;
       if(!email.test(v)) {
            alert('Wrong')
      }
 }

Neat Script for phone no :)

use this for emails
<script>
function varemail()
{
var sCont = document.frm.email;
var sContVal = document.frm.email.value;

var str=new String();
str=sContVal;
var span=new RegExp("[ ]","g");
var rep=str.replace(span,"9");            

if (sContVal.length != 0)
      {
            if(sContVal == ''  || isNaN(rep) == false)
                  {
                        alert("Please enter email properly [ anand@direct2s.com ]");
                        sCont.focus();
                        sCont.select();
                        return false;
                  }                              
                              
            var sAtSym    = sContVal.indexOf('@')
            var sAtSym2        = sContVal.lastIndexOf('@')
            var sPeriod   = sContVal.lastIndexOf('.')
            var sSpace    = sContVal.indexOf(' ')
            var sLength   = sContVal.length - 1  
            
            if ( (sAtSym < 2) || (sAtSym != sAtSym2) || (sPeriod <= sAtSym+2) || (sPeriod == sLength ) || (sSpace  != -1) )                  
               {
                        alert("Please enter email properly [ anand@direct2s.com ]");
                        sCont.focus();
                        sCont.select();
                        return false;
               }

take a look at this from another thread

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function validate(emailad) {
a = emailad.split(";")
var exclude=/[^@\-\.\w]|^[_@\.\-]|[\._\-]{2}|[@\.]{2}|(@)[^@]*\1/;
var check=/@[\w\-]+\./;
var checkend=/\.[a-zA-Z]{2,3}$/;
for(i=0;i<a.length;i++)
{
   emailadd = a[i];
   if(((emailad.search(exclude) != -1)||(emailad.search(check)) == -1)||(emailad.search(checkend)
== -1)){
        alert("Incorrect email address!");
        return false
   }
   else {
   alert('hello')
        //document.form.submit();
   }
}
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form method="post" action="this.htm">
<input type="text" name="email" onBlur="javascript:validate(this.value)";>
<input type="submit">
</form>

I use this Netscape RegEx written library:

http://developer.netscape.com/docs/examples/javascript/regexp/overview.html

It is really good, it has simple methods for everything.  US Number, SSN, International Number, Email Address, Dates, Zip Codes, Credit Cards, and it even has text box validation and has easy ways to warn the user with a message.
