You need to use entity escapes for characters that have special meaning in 
XML (like <, >, ", ', &).

Replace task value can't take less than sign.






This is the task I am trying to run:

<!--++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++-->
<target name="prepareWebXml" 
description="Make web.xml suitable for SSL on production server">
                                 <replace dir="${web.inf}" 
value="</auth-constraint>">
                                   <include name="web.xml"/>
                                   <replacetoken></auth-constraint>
                 <user-data-constraint>
 
<transport-guarantee>
                                    CONFIDENTIAL
 
</transport-guarantee>
                 </user-data-constraint>
                                   </replacetoken>
                                 </replace>
</target>
<!--++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++-->
I get this error:
The value of attribute "value" associated with an element type "replace"
must not contain the '<' character.

How can I escape the "<" sign in my value properly?

Thanks in advance.
