One other thing to try is the use of the
's' => "single-line"
'm' => "multi-line"
switches at the end of your match, which basically deal with newlines differently. In short 's' treats newlines differently (so they get treated as if they are a part of '.') and 'm' does not. So you might want to try
SideNote The \Q and \E save you the trouble of \ing everything that might be special to a regexp. you could also use quotemeta to get the same thing.
Updated the comment on 's' vs. 'm'. Thanks japhy and perlre.
