also with regular expression:

regExpression = /^[A-Za-z]*$/ ;
            if(!regExpression.test(document.formname.TextBox1.value)){
                  alert(getMessage("Invalid Text"));
                  document.formname.TextBox1.focus();
                  document.formname.TextBox1.select();
                  return false;
            }
