SWORD supports compiling with a variety of regex engines-- typically GNU 
regex on most linux system.  We include 'internal regex' copy of this, 
as well.  We also will compile against the C++ standard regex engine 
including the language spec.  Each handles unicode characters different.

. is certainly recognized, but I would guess that in whatever regex 
library you are using during compile, it represents a byte and not a 
literal character.  Try .{1-6}
