Presumably your "Source" below is this "HTML embedded in a CDATA section"?
It doesn't look much like HTML to me!

You haven't escaped the ? in your regex. "<?" in a regex matches "<" or
nothing, it doesn't match "<?". You need "<\?".

Note that writing the ? as an XML character reference doesn't escape it.
Your &#63; is translated to a ? long before the regex parser sees it.
