Escape them.
I tried using [& l t ; and & g t ;] : "<yo!>" and it worked.

An alternative(and possibly better approach) to this could be specifying the text in the values->strings.xml file and then use static functions of the Html class to format your text. Html class contains many useful methods for handling string containing HTML, unicode, etc. characters.

Awesome. Thanks. I totally forgot about specifying in the values file.
