Glad. Figured as this should be consistent across most environments, but tested in Java.

+Must begin with number.
+Must have . in it.
+Must end with exactly two digits.

If you want to allow .25 the same as 0.25, then you can change to this:

^[0-9]*\.[0-9]{2}$

Not sure if this works in all environments, but it should but you also have the \d representing numeric values.

^\d*\.\d{2}$

Hope all that helps.
