Are you kidding?  That's not even context-free, let alone regular! ;-)

Perhaps "liverUpdate" has something to do with the amount of gin 
required to parse this.

It matches too much for this case, for example:

   <span id=\"foo\">FOO
     <span id=\"bar\">BAR</span>
   <span id=\"oops\">OOPS</span>

I don't think it can be fixed, even with beefy modern regexes -- unless 
you build a parse tree so you can match up the end tags.
