Your regex is messy.

Using the /x flag (see perlre), plus

  • linebreaks
  • space
  • comments

would make things far more readable! ( Not only for you ...:)

Consider also composing your regex from smaller parts thru interpolation of variables.

Anyway from what I can spot are you treating " and ' very differently.

Since your requirements are fuzzy I don't dare telling what you really want.
