    Problem in regular expression in text in other language then english

    Hello

    I found this site:
    http://www.regular-expressions.info/...ptexample.html

    I change the regular expression to this: "\b[\x00-\xFF]+\b"
    and it find all as except.

    but when I copy to there text in Hebrew or Arabic, it is not find anything

    What is the problem?

    You have shown that regex in quotes - are you creating it using new RegExp()? If so, then all backslashes must be escaped - \\.
    Secondly, that expression searches character codes 0-ff (0-255). For Hebrew I believe you need something in the range: \u0590-\u05ff
