RegEx to Completely Remove BBCode in Text.php

    I have an application where I have a custom BBCode to insert some meta data into a post. For the thread preview and/or the meta page description I need to completely remove that tag.

    The tag itself is something like this..
    <meta itemprop="property" content="MIXEDVALUE">
    In BbCode/Formatter/Text.php I have this code..
    tags['tagname'] = array(
       'hasOption' => true,
       'optionRegex' => '/([A-Z])\w+/',
       'replace' => array('<meta itemprop="property" content="\'%s\'', '"\/>')
    That code does strip everything except the MIXEDVALUE.

    Which I don't exactly understand because the 'optionRegex' does match the MIXEDVALUE perfectly.

    What am I missing here?

    EDIT: The other part in Text.php is this...
    public function handleTagTagname(array $tag, array $rendererStates)
           $output = $this->renderSubTree($tag['children'], $rendererStates);
           return "";

    The text.php does not work quite the way I thought it did. I found that the snippet template helper is a better way to go.
