 The problem is not the Regex.  I have tested 3 or 4 different versions that 
all work on the many different test sites.  The problem is it that the 
validation does not seem to work. I have changed the patter to only allow NA 
and I can still type anything into the text box.  Is there some issue with 
useing Regex as your validation?[/q]

 Bear in mind that by default validation does not occur until the user attempts 
to submit the form.  If you are trying to control the characters that the user 
can enter into the textbox, as opposed to validating what they have entered, 
you will need to provide your own javascript validation.
