[edan] Why not?  Works fine.  Might not be the best regexp (better to use /key=([^;]+)(;|$)/g), but what you wrote works fine (assuming you want to capture the values only, despite saying you want to capture the key=value pairs, but I assume that's not your issue).  

What problem are you having with the regexp you wrote?
