Word's angle-bracket syntax is neither XML nor HTML, so neither the XML
nor HTML output methods in XSLT can generate it. You have two options:

(a) write your own output method (many XSLT processors allow this, for
example by subclassing the standard methods)

(b) use disable-output-escaping to generate angle-brackets directly,
without causing them to be escaped.

The first approach is architecturally cleaner, but the second is
probably quicker.
