Greetings!

I'm not wonderful with regular expressions, and so I wonder if you'd help me with a simple one. In my aspx page, I'd like to require a field to contain five characters, with a leading letter and four following digits as, "a1234."

Can you help with a regular expression that would accomplish this?

Thanks!
