Hi,
How can you parse non-ascii text in Javascript? If I want to parse Chinese characters in Javascript using regular expression. Is this possible?

Thanks
Jamie

Yes, it is possible.  The regex engine Javascript uses will support this.  The most common method is to have the expression use a unicode value.  In regular expressions this is done with ...

\uNNNN (where NNNN is the four digit unicode value)

Let me know if you have a question or need more info on this.

There is some good info on using unicode in an expression at http://www.regular-expressions.info/unicode.html.

I can provide more info or answer questions about this if needed.
