You mean letters from the English alphabet (derived from the Latin/Roman 
alphabet, fyi)? I'm sorry for the nitpicking, but 'English letters' 
sounds a bit too 'ackward' to me.

I'm still (trying to) learn(ing) it myself, but you can try looking into

the PyLib Reference for details; http://docs.python.org/lib/module-re.html.
