That's an XML issue, not an XSLT one.
< must always be escaped in any XML file.

Just use &lt;.

If you are producing an HTML script element this will be linearised as "<"
(as html script is a CDATA element)

If you are producing an XHTML script element this will be linearised as "&lt"
(as XHTML script takes PCDATA content). An XHTML implementation will
extract the XML-escaped text from the script element and pass the
underlying character data to the javascript engibe, so javascript will
see a "<" in either case.
