The [\x00-\xFF]* just skips enough lines to get to the next queen.

Your explanation above is good. However, the above quote is the actual meat of my question ...

    Well, [\x00-\xFF]* matches anything, or any length. I can't use .* here because it should skip over newlines as well. And adding /s to the regex won't do it either, as other </code>.*</code>'s should *not* match newlines.
