5-19.jpg-The entity reference code will be entered for each individual < and >. -The < and > will be displayed as half-width inequality marks.
Inequality symbols in half width will still be treated as a HTML tag, and as they may not show up on the browser and need to be converted to an entity reference (character string). If you use half-width inequality symbols for emoticons, they will be deemed as tags and may not display so please use this tool to solve the problem.
