Hi All ...

I have a form using the JqueryUI Dialog library.
Within there is a name field which is set as required, but I need it to accept foreign characters (German to be more exact) which is doesn't at the moment.

The validation code (which uses regex) is as follows:
bValid = bValid && checkRegexp( name, /^[A-Z0-9 _]*$/i, "Name is missing" );

Open in new window

I need it to accept the following ä,ö,ü,ß characters too.  

How can I adjust the above line to cater for this?

Many Thanks
