So you want something like this?

Code:
<span class="italics">[^<]*\s.*</span>
It might not be the right regex dialect, but [^<] is intended to mean "any character not <". That won't match instances where there is something nested in the <span> before the first space, but those should be rare, and can be looked for afterwards.
