Regular Expression problem

1
Hi,
I am new to regular expression stuffs. I am facing problem while implementing a reg. exp. for a textbox using regular expression validator in ASP page.

Requirement:
It will take only alphanumeric value i.e a-z,A-Z and 0-9

I am using reg. exp. ^[a-zA-Z0-9]*$
This is fine with a-z,A-Z and 0-9 checking but it also taking japanese characters

Please tell me where I am worng.

Thanks,
