What language?

Let's assume Perl.

Here's a not so robust way of checking:

$string = 'some text with a <tag> in it';

print "String may contain a HTML tag\n" if ($string =~ /<.*>/);

If you want to check for valid HTML tags or tags that are split across lines, things get a little more complicated.
