Re: [xsl] XSLT Regex for Matching Curly Braces

Agree, if expand-text is available (if one uses XSLT 3.0, for which there is 
almost no reason not to).

If you want to use xsl:analyze-string with XSLT 2.0 (or 3.0), you can put the 
regex in a variable, like so:

 <xsl:variable name="regex" as="xs:string" select="'\{([^}]+)\}'"/>

I think it's even clearer to use

<xsl:variable name="regex" as="xs:string" 

This way you avoid complications with single and double quotes as well as curly 
braces: the only characters that now have an XML or XSLT-defined special 
meaning are "&" and "<", and these fortunately don't have special meanings in 
regular expressions.
