Seeing how this is a macro, you could record:
1) search for "(?=.*?")
2) move right
3) search for [^"]*
One problem I see with this though, is, that you can't know if you're
inside an attribute, i.e. if you are, you'd have to skip the closing
" before performing the steps above.
(and now I await the request to use scope selectors in searches :) )

With normal searches you could search backwards for " (thrice). When
I do migrate to oniguruma, backwards regexp searches will be possible.
