checking input of textbox

This is a follow up to this ticket.

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29097874/using-jquery-or-JavaScript-to-prevent-user-from-typing-a-character-string-in-a-textbox.html?anchor=a42554070¬ificationFollowed=207158836#a42554070

This is just for learning purposes, learning to work with regex.

So in the example in that ticket, how would I revise it to the following.
Either using regex or jquery or JavaScript.

Add a button called Button1.

If I type the less than sign proceded by the forwad slash sign like this </ then hide the button.
If I type the greater than sign preceded by the forwad slash sign like this /> then hide the button.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is the button disabled if there is any /> or </ in the text
OR
Is the button disabled only at the point that you type the > in '/>'' or the '/' in '/>'

Here is a sample that works on the contains approach
HTML
<textarea class="form-control" id="tester"></textarea>
<button class="btn btn-primary" id="thebutton">Click me</button>

Open in new window

JQuery
<script>
$(function() {
  $('#tester').keyup(function() {
    var disabled = $(this).val().indexOf('/>') > 0 || $(this).val().indexOf('</') > 0;
    $('#thebutton').prop({disabled: disabled});
  });
});
</script>

Open in new window
