&lt; would be valid in the context of XHTML -- Internet Explorer treats
XHTML as HTML and (per David Carlisle's post) &lt; would be valid in the
XHTML context, but not in the HTML context.

To resolve that, you'd need to adjust your <xsl:output> node to be along the
lines of:
	<xsl:output method="html" encoding="iso-8859-1"
omit-xml-declaration="yes" doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01
Transitional//EN" doctype-system="http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd" />

Tweak doctypes and encodings to fit your needs (I only include them here as
a mark of "good practice" and copy & paste -- loose isn't the best doctype,
after all...)

Dear Rowland Shaw,
It seems <![CDATA[ does the same as the htmlspecialchar function in PHP
(transfer html directionchars to harmless values)
What i did (while waiting for response) turn around every Java expresion ie.
1 < 0 ? becoming 0 > 1 ? this worked.
Now I tried the <![CDATA[ variation and it gave:
function xmld(x,l)
{ var r="",c; for(i=0;i&lt;l;i++) { c = xmldate.charAt(x+i); r+=(c!="0" ||
r!="")?c:""; }
  return r;
so this isn't java. (&lt;)
Isn't there a xml/xsl tag that returns < at the the front end?
PS. I use xml with xsl now in a php processor(this is a better processor
than the one of the ie explorer + I get XHTML source back) instead of using
the <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="example.xsl"?> directive in the
xml file.
Gr. Robert

But when I have:
