How to display <>

1 New Member
Hi,

I have a query.

All html tags start with < and end with >. Suppose i want to display either '<' or '>' or say some text like '<Company>' in html how do i do it?

One method is to use &lt, &gt ,&ltCompany&g t to display '<', '>' and '<Company>' respectively.

But is there any freeware code available which could implement the above functionality without having to use &gt,&lt and such stuff???

Please do respond!!

Thanks

Not that I know of. You could maybe use javascript but I don't know how it would know one < > from another in the html. Or use your text editor to find and replace < > with &lt; and &gt; before uploading the html document.

With a server side script it would be possible but sounds like too much work for such a simple task unless the data is dynamically inserted into your html documents. You could do it with PHP (not that I know how) but once again it sounds like too much work unless the data is dynamic.

Another alternative is to use a textarea tag but that works best for large chunks of html code you want to display as raw text and not individual words imbedded in sentences.

Since the include function is called from within a PHP script, why does the included file have to identify itself as a PHP again by enclosing its code in <?php... <?> One would assume that the PHP interpreter works like any other, that is, it first expands all the include files, and then parses the resulting text. Can anyone help with an explanation? Thanks, M. McDonnell
