validating NOT english - El Forum - 07-15-2011

[eluser]idofr[/eluser]
hey, i'd like to validate a page submitted in hebrew. now unfortunately i experience some encoding issues with the server side validation (using the CI validation class)so i thought, if the main thing i'm server-side-validating for is code injection why not validate for a LACK of english letters?

so my questions are:
1. am i current with my approach?
2. how can i use CI to validate against english?

thank you
