Ola Manuel,

The email_validation.php file was saved as ISO and has a strange character in the $email_regular_expression value that I cannot display (maybe an UTF8 char?), it shows as a square sign in my text editor and in my browser so I cannot paste it here.

be well

That is character that is no allowed in e-mail addresses. It does not affect the purpose of the class. Do you have any problems using it?

Hello Manuel,

I have no problems using it if I leave the code as is.

However, personalizing the error messages responses (eg:tranlating) is impossible because it requires to edit the file, and saving it afterwards truncates the two special characters, making the regular expression unusable (BAD_REGXP).

be well

I suppose that I can replace it by an escape sequence. Would it help?
