The construct [abc] does not match a whole word but only one char, so
[^table] means "any char which is not t, a, b, l or e".
Anyway the inside table word won't match your pattern, as there are '<'
and '>' in it, and these chars have to be escaped when used as simple text.
So this should work:
^ this is to avoid matching a tag name starting with table
