[clug-talk] Firefox, Konqueror behaviour different

Yes appears to be all javascript. The javascript console displays this
on message two separate occasions when changing screens:

-------------------- start of error msg --------------------------
Error: unterminated character class
Source File: http://reservation.martinair.com/dxtra/dxtra.aspx
Line: 79, Column: 32
Source Code:
												valid.txtLastName = /^[a-zA-Z]{2,50}([ /\,]+[a-zA-Z]{2,50})*$/;
-------------------- end of error msg --------------------------

A little arrow points to variable valid.txtLastName.

Could this possibly mean that Firefox doesn't handle character set
changes very well, i.e. Western European vs. US English? And by
extension that Konqueror has no problems with character set changes?

Thank you for pointing out the Javascript Console in Firefox. Hadn't
used it up until now.
