I mentioned the /s modifier due to this, from the perlre page:

s Treat string as single line. That is, change "." to match any character whatsoever, even a newline, which it normally would not match.
But in re-reading that and your code, I found I was mistaken and you do need it incase your tags span multiple lines.. Doh! Ahh well, glad you caught the problem otherwise =]
