I'm using str.replace() to generate "sane" characters in usernames on in a
str = str.replace(/ê/g,"e");
str = str.replace(/ë/g,"e");
Now, sometimes people use punctuation and apostrophes and that sort of
stuff in their names, I would very much like to strip those and replace
them with spaces.
I got stuck already at the punctuation (never reaching the apostrophe)
Normally I use
http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/tryit...yjsref_replace to test
if my replacements are valid.
This page claims, that
str = str.replace(/./g,"");
should be a valid
Using that in a form, gives me undersireable results. :-)
Then I tried to escape the punctuation mark.
str = str.replace(/\./g,"");
This fails to deploy with a validation error, claiming that the escape
sequence is invalid.
Can any insightfull person tell me what to do ?
