Well, actually I checked it by running the same java function through xsl.
Using 4 "\" i
get the regex \w or \w* as the case may be.

The Processor i am using is Xalan 2.4.1

You are generating a regular expression that will contain "\\w". This will
match a string containing a "\" followed by a "w". But you are using it to
match element names, which never contain a "\".
