In most cases it works fine...

Further to choroba's post: MARVion: Your regex doesn't really work at all because almost everything in it is optional (i.e., has the  ? quantifier) except the  (\d+) bit at the end, so it is happy to match with and capture the first group of decimal digits in anything. What are you really after here?
