    How to apply regular expressions to unicode characters?

    I have a regular expression that replaces characters and numbers in a string. I use preg_replace and a regular expression of "/[a-z\d]/i" to do that. $newtext= preg_replace("/[a-z\d]/i", "x", $originaltext); Is there an easy way to extend that regex to include unicode characters? Edited to...
