Truncate Dynamic Text Field

Hey Guys,

It'd be useful to be able to display only certain parts of a text string displayed by dynamic text.
As an example, I'd like to be able to shorten the MXD name for display in the title block.

mxd name: MapRegion_8893.mxd

Properties of the text field in title block:
Map Region <dyn type="document" property="title"/>

Displays: Map Region MapRegion_8893
Id like: Map Region 8893

Any Ideas?
