Joomla ReReplacer with Regular Expression Conditionals

We currently have an Joomla 1.5 installed on our webserver with a tool from nonumber.nl called ReReplacer. ReReplacer from what I can gather basically runs all the html of a given page through a php function (I assume but do not know it is preg_replace) to replace certain text with given replacements. The tool works great for the simple things I have used it for in the past, but now I have a more complex situation:

Based on the title of the page I want to construct a conditional regular expression that will replace the word "{Article}" with the text from a given html comment. So basically here's a simple example of what I want.

Here is some example html output of the website:
<html>
<head>
<title>Quickbooks</title>
<!--Article1:This product can be used for...-->
<!--Article2:This product suite has been usefull to us for....-->
<!--Article3:...-->
</head>
<body>
{Article}
Generic text that fits all here.
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


So basically I need a regular expression that will look at the title (the text between <title> and </title> tags) and if it is Quickbooks or ACT, then I will display the text in the Article1 comment. If the contents of the title tags is Crystal Reports or Access or Business Objects Enterprise I want it to display the text in the Article2 comment.

Unfortunately all the links on google concerning Regular Expression Conditionals seem to have one line conditionals that do both the search and replace all on one line. This is a problem because ReReplacer expects separate search and replace fields to be filled in. Note the response to this question must work with ReReplacer in Joomla. Can anyone help me construct the conditional I am looking for?

This pattern will match Quickbooks or ACT in the title - I don't know enough about the language you're using to put it into code though:
<title>(Quickbooks|ACT)</title>

Alternatively, a pattern like this should hopefully capture the text you want to display:
(?:(?:Quickbooks|ACT)</title>[\w\W]*?<!--Article1:|(?:Crystal Reports|Access|Business Objects Enterprise)</title>[\w\W]*?<!--Article2:)(.*?)-->
