When I use the same XML and XSL and view it in IE5.0, i get the desired result. I am not getting < and > only when I use xalan.

You can disable output escaping by setting disable-output-escaping="yes" on
the <xsl:text> or <xsl:value-of> instructions.

But usually, if you need to do so, it's a sign that there's something wrong
in your design. Xalan is outputting &lt; rather than < because it's
outputting text rather than an element node: why have you written your
stylesheet in such a way that the elements look like text?
