regexp question

xsl regexp
Using XSLT 2.o, I want to take this:

<meta name="pdate" content="20001123"/>

.... and get this:

<meta name="dateIssued" content="2000-11-23"/>

Why isn't the following pattern matching (in the xhtml:meta template), and is there a better way?

<xsl:when test="@name='pdate'">
<xsl:analyze-string select="@content" regex='(\d[4])(\d[2])(\d[2])'>
<xsl:matching-substring>
<meta name="dateIssued">
<xsl:attribute name="content">
<xsl:value-of select="regex-group(1)"/>
<xsl:text>-</xsl:text>
<xsl:value-of select="regex-group(2)"/>
<xsl:text>-</xsl:text>
<xsl:value-of select="regex-group(3)"/>
</xsl:attribute>
</meta>
</xsl:matching-substring>
<xsl:non-matching-substring>
<meta name="dateIssued" content="{.}"/>
</xsl:non-matching-substring>
</xsl:analyze-string>
</xsl:when>
