Specifics of where/which regex is used matters.

But in general

{code}
\s*( \s*)+
{code}

until the close of the span tag


In valid XML looking for the closing tag is pointless. But you can add it if you want.

XML


Just noting that regexes to parse XML is not a good idea. Primarily this comes down to blocks embedded in other blocks. You cannot parse that with a regex. But there are other complex issues also that would require hideous regexes (which means slow) also.

Also there can be other variances in what you posted.
1. Multiline
2. Spaces in the tags
3. Attributes in the tag.
