Default not able to add forward slash in regex

I have a requirement where <br> needs to be replaced with <br/> so I am doing this in my regex

$htmlstring =~ s/br>/br/>/;

This is not working and I am sure I am doing this wrong. Could someone tell me wha tthe syntax is please?

FFR you need to escape the slash thus:

$htmlstring =~ s/br>/br\/>/;
