xml transformation convert "<" or ">" value to &lt or &gt

I do xml / xslt transformation using asp.net but I found
any value (w/xml format) in xml node html-encoded to &lt and &gt format if
it's > or < tag.
Since I have sub xml data in a parent xml node as a value.
Check out the following problem. I want to convert the value in <WpDatesXml>
node to have a valid "<" and ">" instead of &lt or &gt format so that I can
use this xml for another use. Please help!

The only reason I am doing is because each node of xml is actually a
placeholder in mscms. I grab cms placeholder data from a template and create
a dataset out of it and convert to xml format and try to transform w/xslt.
<WpDatesXml> is actually xml data type and supposed to be reused for another
db manipulation. I can't touch database since it's all mscms.
