The sentence "This will not work reliably among Javascript implementations." means that if you use this regular expression in a .NET RegularExpressionValidator you must set the property "EnableClientScript" to false.

A small point but one that will prevent this expression from working in CLR 2.0

Thanks for this site and the expressions on it.

You are correct. Of course, I do need to test this to be sure. Positive lookaheads are a Javascript 1.5 feature. In theory it should be usable in modern browsers today if it wasn't for this IE bug:

However, I'm not sure if this expression is affected by the bug or not. I'll test it out later today and may revise my disclaimer. ;)

So it appears to work fine in IE so I've removed my disclaimer. It's definitely something to look out for with positive lookaheads and JScript, but at least this regular expression works.
