I have this pretty much perfect except for a minor bug...

What i got is..

$alb = "An Expression That Follows The Rules";
preg_match("/[0-9A-Z+a-z \.\'-]+[^A-Z0-9][^A-Z]/",$alb,$str);

That works....


when i put like

$alb = "An Expression That Follows The RulesBBOAO";
preg_match("/[0-9A-Z+a-z \.\'-]+[^A-Z0-9][^A-Z]/",$alb,$str);

The BBOAO will come through....
How do I make it stop if theres captials without a space before it...
and also it cant be consecutive capitals

Thanks a ton. it took me forever to write the expression up there, lol im not good with these
