Oh, yes: always double your backslashes (well /nearly/ [1] always).
The first ones are for Lisp's string syntax.

Emacs is your world, then. Well, nearly :) It groks {} repetitions
(cf. the docs). Note that they are spelt with a backslash (don't
forget to double it in string context). This would give:


in your case (the dots are ellipses, for the rest of your regexp).


[1] When you are writing the regexp in a Lisp string. Not when
   you are entering it interactively, e.g. in the minibuffer.
