You should never do this. Instead, try to parse you'r xml to tell if it's valid or not.

What you posted in neither well-formed nor valid XML.

Note that single regexps are not powerful enough to even check wellformedness of XML, much less validity (which implies the presence of some sort of schema).
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
