Why is 'analyze-string' producing this weird output?

 Why is 'analyze-string' producing this weird output?
Hi Folks,

I'm baffled.

Here is a sample input line:

5.2 Record Type (S/T)

The first part -- 5.2 -- is the 'section number'.

The second part -- Record Type -- is the 'section name'.

The third part -- (S/T) -- is the 'abbreviated name'.

I want the XSLT to generate this:

    <section-name>Record Type</section-name>

I created several ENTITIES for use by my XSLT:

<!ENTITY section-num "[0-9]+(\.[0-9]+)+">
<!ENTITY section-name "[A-Z][a-zA-Z /]+">
<!ENTITY paren "\([^\)]+\)">

I use 'analyze-string' to break apart the input:

<xsl:analyze-string select="$line" regex="^(&section-num;) (&section-name;)

That produces this erroneous output:

    <abbreviated-name>Record Type</abbreviated-name>

I am baffled why I am getting that output.

What am I doing wrong, please?
