JavaScript/REGEX: Get content from between two points in string

Using JavaScript and Regular Expressions, how can I get the content from a string between  
{[English]}
and
{[/English]}
?

This does not work, probably because of escaping related issues:
var data = '{[Spanish]}Hola{[/Spanish]}{[English]}Hello{[/English]}{[Italian]}Ciao{[/Italian]}';
alert(  data.match('{[English]}(.*){[/English]}')[1] );

Open in new window

You need to use a regex in match not a string
I mean : new RegExp or /your regex here/

Test page : http://jsfiddle.net/c8SUZ/

var data = '{[Spanish]}Hola{[/Spanish]}{[English]}Hello{[/English]}{[Italian]}Ciao{[/Italian]}';
alert(  data.match(/{\[English\]}(.*){\[\/English\]}/)[1] );

Open in new window


You need also to escape : [] and /
The escaping char is : \
