Use the following regular expression:


regex 1

Note: If you would like to include the space following the closing bracket, you can simply add a single space character to the end of expression.

regex 2

Good answer...but wouldn't the . you added at the end of the second regex pick up any character after the closing bracket rather than just a single space? – martineau Mar 15 '12 at 17:30
@martineau Oops. Correct! You can simply use a single space character. I'll update my answer. – iglvzx Mar 15 '12 at 17:37
