Let me get this straight. Is the output you have listed your desired output, or the
current output? It appears that there is something missing in your template.

Check out one of Michael Kay's answers on another case of analyze-string at Your code does not bring
output to the other one because it does not know what to call after the analyze-string
function has been applied. Or, is there something you are trying to do?

I think you want <xsl:analyze-string select="$txt" regex="{$re2}" > here to have the constructed string bound to re2 as the regular expression and not the literal string "$re2"
