Splitting dynamic text strings with XML tags

Is there a way to extract parts of text from a dynamic text using xml tags? What I would like to do is to extract the number from an mxd file name and write it to a text box inside arcmap which is the caption. Example:

filename: Fig_3_Test.mxd

caption: <dyn type="document" property="name" split text start =3 end = 5/>

 

Thanks in advance
