XML strongly suggests using UTF-8. The Basic Profile Version 1.0 says -


The Profile consistently requires either UTF-8 or UTF-16 encoding for both SOAP and WSDL (see also R1012).

R4003 A DESCRIPTION MUST use either UTF-8 or UTF-16 encoding.



What's the special character we are talking about?

Regards,
Dan

Hi!
Either wrap the element value that contains the "<" and/or ">" characters in a CDATA section. Reference: http://www.w3schools.com/XML/xml_cdata.asp
...or use the characters "& lt;" (without the space after the ampersand) instead of "<" and "& gt;" (again without the space after the ampersand) instead of ">".
Best wishes!

Right, Ivan is right, please look at Predefined entities in XML.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
