Build a Tribute Page- include "<" in text without starting an element

Tell us what’s happening:
I want to include the character < in the text in my list, but when I do it thinks I am opening an element. How do I make this “<” included in the text without creating an element?

Your code so far

     <li> <strong>>Album Title Goes Here<</strong> </li>

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Maybe you can try this:
\<

Thats what I tried before, but had no luck. I feel like the fix is simple its just hard to google the right thing.

My last ditch try, before I realize I’m not helpful:

so &lt ; (minus that extra space) I’m guessing?

Sweet that worked. I didn’t even realize those existed. Thanks for the help!

Yeah you can use that to actually display reserved characters for HTML AND to display characters that aren’t on your keyboard. For instance, try this in your editor:
&ltrPar;
