Replace < with &lt;

Replace > with &gt;

(where those abbreviations stand for "less than" and "greater than")

Before: if x < 5:

After: if x &lt; 5:

Another common character in code that you "should" do similarly is  
the double quote ("). For that, use &quot;

Before: if x == "foo":

After: if x == &quot;foo&quot;:
