The XPath syntax _is_ <  as in 3 < 5 but in any XML attribute if you
need to enter a < you have to quote it, so to put that XPath expression
in an attribute you need <xsl:if test="3 &lt; 5"> This is nothing to do
with Xpath or XSLT, it is just a basic rule of XML. The same rule does
not apply to > so you can go <xsl:if test="3 &gt; 5">  or  <xsl:if test="3 > 5">
