My Asp.net page contains a RequiredFieldValidator and RegularExpressionValidator.  Texbox1 collects a bid amount for an item and is typically in us dollars.  This is the code I used ValidationExpression="^\d+(\.\d\d)?$" ControlToValidate="TextBox1".  

It works great.  My application is setup to email me when an error occurs on the site.  Below is an extract of a recent error.

The error description is as follows : System.Web.HttpUnhandledException: Exception of type System.Web.HttpUnhandledException was thrown. ---> System.InvalidCastException: Cast from string "35.000 US$" to type 'Double' is not valid. ---> System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

Why can't I replicate this error.  When testing from IE 7. The form will not allow me to enter "35.000 US$" .   Does RequiredFieldValidator and RegularExpressionValidator only work on certain web clients?  Do I need to add addtional validation bin the code behind?

Thank you in advance for your help.
