I think I should be able to search for an input field html and replace using the code below, where the variable $html contains a text input field with it's value set to [quantity]. However this depends on the value setting preceding the field's closing tag. Can this pattern match be improved to search for html that starts with '<input', ends with '/>' and contains 'value="[quantity]"'?
$new_html = preg_replace('/<input(.*)value="\[quantity\]" \/>/', $quantity, $html);

Try this:
$new_html = preg_replace('#<input(?=[^>]*value="\[quantity\]")[^>]*>#', $quantity, $html);
