RegEx to prefix or postfix in TextPad

Let’s say you have a list of cities per new line as follows:
Bangalore
Hyderabad
Pune
Mumbai
Chennai
Kolkata

And you would like to transform the list into an XML input format:
<city>Bangalore</city>
<city>Hyderabad</city>
<city>Pune</city>
<city>Mumbai</city>
<city>Chennai</city>
<city>Kolkata</city>

This is how you can do it using TextPad:
1. Prefix: Search for ^ and replace with <city>
2. Postfix: Search for $ and replace with </city>
