Try using &lt; for the < character. Ant is in an XML file so you should use
the element names for XML reserved characters.

Minor issue with this: It appears that the regexp pattern cannot include the
"<" character, even if it's escaped.  This isn't mentioned in the
documentation.  In my case, it's relatively safe to just replace that with
"." in the pattern, but I was wondering about this.
