    I can't find a way of using < (less-than) and > (greater-than) characters in comment text inside the library XML for B4R.

    I see that B4J's library XML supports &lt; and &gt;
    but this is not supported in the B4R library XML file.

    I am tryng to add a demonstration PHP script to the comments.
    Can't get the text "<?php ... ?>" to display in the IDE pop-up.

    Works fine here.

    I've added it to the .h file with:
    //Scans for wireless networks. Returns the number of networks found.
    //&lt; test
    Byte Scan();

    It looks like this in the XML file (which you normally shouldn't update yourself):
    <method>
    <name DesignerName="Scan">Scan</name>
    <comment>Scans for wireless networks. Returns the number of networks found.
    &amp;lt; test</comment>
    <returntype>Byte</returntype>
    </method>

    I have been manually editing my XML files for B4R.
    I see the ampersand chr itself must be represented by &amp;
    All works fine now.
    Thanks
