I'm assuming you're using GUI.TextField?

It doesn't appear that there's a built-in way to restrict the text field's legal input set, however, you can achieve the validation behavior you want by writing a script:

public class LimitInput : MonoBehaviour {
  public void OnGUI() {
    text = GUI.TextField(..., text);
    text = /* replace offending text here */

  string text = string.Empty;

A simple implementation of the replacement might be along the lines of text = text.Replace("!", "") for example (to remove all ! characters). To implement the specifics of your request, you'll probably want regular expressions.
