Subject Re: Use properties in regular expressions

Properties in attributes are expanded *before* they are handed to tasks. 
  So the answer is yes you can use Ant properties in 'replace'.  Its 
task-dependent whether that is true for XML element data (like the <sql> 
task), but attributes always follow this rule.
