Description

Bug discovered while working on Issue #3790.

Attempted to convert a supplied string to a regex string (e.g. suitable for use in xsl:analyze-string) by escaping characters explicitly:


fn:replace($search, "[\^\.\\\?\*\+\{\}\(\)\|\$\[\]]", "\\$0" )

However this did not work as expected. Apparently there is some problem handling special characters in the replacement string (the 3rd arg of fn:replace) in the Saxon-JS implementation.
