How to extract the timestamp from an HTML file?


Howdy. I'm trying to index an HTML file, and I can not, for the life of me, get the timestamp to extract when using the preview. Here's the event:

<abbr class="dt" title="2013-05-27T04:24:58.979Z">May 27, 2013, 4:24:58 AM
<cite class="sender vcard"><a class="tel" href="tel:+*******"><span class="fn">+**********</span></a></cite>:
<q>Yeah, I'll be there</q></div> 

And here's what I'm using for settings.

TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S
TIME_PREFIX = <abbr class="\w+" title="

It's just not finding the timestamp at all. Any idea why? I've tried a few other iterations, even going so far as to make the prefix <.*>, and setting the time format to match the second timestamp; still nothing. I'm getting pretty frustrated.

I would avoid using any kind of tag notation within TIME_PREFIX. Have you tried just as below?

TIME_PREFIX= title="
TIME_FORMAT = %Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%S.%N%Z
