Rich, an HTML question:

Steve Jobes

Feb 13, 2012, 8:37 PM
Is it possible to display the less than and greater than symbols used for HTML code on this site in a message? I understand that you can use them unattached from anything, such as Star Wars > Star Trek, but what if I want to teach somebody how to use HTML and I don't want to use brackets in place of less than/greater than symbols?

For example, I know the HTML code can be played with to write out the word cocky for example, which is normally blocked, but if I try the same trick with writing out an HTML command, it shows nothing.

I don't feel like I'm properly explaining this, so if you need clarification, please let me know.

"gt" and "lt" are the HTML entity codes for greater-than and less-than. Use them like this:


For example:

<b>bold text</b>
