Filter tree control by typing in a textbox using Jquery

I have a textbox and a tree control on a page that I need to filter the contents of the tree as I type in the textbox. My tree control has 2 levels to it. The root level is alpha type characters and the child level is numeric based on the following...
<ul class="BNG">
     <li class="BNH">Aiken
          <ul class="BNG">
               <li class="BNH">1550
               <li class="BNH">7456
               <li class="BNH">4589
          </ul>
     </li>
</ul>

This is a short grouping. The tree has many parent and child nodes. It is possible that there might be a numeric character in the root node and also possible to have a alpha character in the child node. I need to have a Jquery code filter the child and root nodes as I type in the textbox. I have been trying to use the .keyup function of the textbox for this. If I type "15" in the textbox I need the root node Aiken to be visible and the child node 1550 to be visible. If I type "Aik" in the textbox, I need the root node Aiken to be visible as well as all the child nodes for Aiken (1550, 7456, 4589). My java and jquery is beginner level and would appreciate any help on this. Thanks!

Test page : http://jsfiddle.net/xwkQ5/
$(document).ready(function() {
    $("#textbox").bind("keyup change blur paste", function() {
        var term = $(this).val();
        $("ul,li", ".BNG").filter(function() { return $(this).text().indexOf(term)>=0; }).show()
        $("ul,li", ".BNG").filter(function() { return $(this).text().indexOf(term)<0; }).hide()
    })
})

Thank you for your reply! I tested this and it partially works. When I type "15" in the text box it does show the Aiken root node and the 1550 child node. Which is perfect. However, when I type "Aik" it only shows the Aiken root node and not all of the child nodes associated with Aiken. Is this doable?
One other thing is that it is case sensitive. If I type "a", Aiken does not show up unless I type "A". Is this doable not to have it case sensitive?

Thanks!

This works great, except it is very, very slow in executing. Any ideas on how to speed it up or is just a factor of page contenet?
There are allot of other controls on my page.
