[Tutor] Regular Expression question

Is it possible to make a regular expression that will match:
'<html blah>' or '<html>'
without having to make it into two complete expressions seperated by a pipe:
 r'<html[ \t].+?>|<html>'

I want it to require a space or tab and at least one character before the 
closing bracket, after 'html', or just the closing bracket.
