I was looking at the regular expression for validating various data types from the (OWASP Regex Repository).

One of the regular expressions in there is called safetext and looks like:

^[a-zA-Z0-9\s.\-]+$

My first question is:
Is this regular expression correct?

complementary question
If this Regex Repository any good at all?
