    Hello:

    I have a RegularExpressionValidator control attached to a TextBox. I have
    the ValidationExpression property set to a very simple validation expression
    (\w+). The validation always fails when entering Greek characters. When I
    test this expression in a standalone test harness, it accepts the Greek
    characters just fine. It is my understanding that the RegEx class in the
    Framework is by default culture sensitive and I assume the
    RegularExpressionValidator control uses this class. Is this a bug in the
    RegularExpressionValidator control? If not, how can I configure the control
    to accept foreign characters?
