    escaping special characters in xml

    RGracia Level 1
      I have an XML file that has answers to a quiz done in Flash and AS 1.0. One of the questions has answers in the form of "> 1" "< 1". This particular answer is referring to less than a year or more than a year. The < doesn't show up at all in the answers screen, probably because it needs to be escaped. Is that possible or do I need to spell out the answer. BTW, is in French which I don't speak so i am opting for keeping the answers as they are, and work around the problem by escaping, had it been Spanish or English I would rewrite the answers comfortably. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Encoding for the XML file is xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"
