re < and > as angle brackets, it was suggested
> Use \textless and \textgreater and you will get real angle brackets.
Unknown in Plain TeX; is it possible that these names
are provided only by a format or package ?
correct. unknown in plain tex, named for latex,
and using fonts other than computer modern.
if using plain tex and cm fonts, they need to
be entered as math, $<$ and $>$ -- and they're
not really "angle brackets" except in the sense
of being used that way for coded input, e.g.
for html. "real" angle brackets (also math)
are \langle and \rangle.
