No, this is a standard serialization issue... what you are trying to do is
potentially output illegal markup.  In memory, the text is represented as "
<<<", but these have to be escaped in the output in order to make the
markup legal.  The fact that your node happens to contain legal HTML markup
is unknown to the DOM and to the serializer.

Maybe not.  I probably made it sound more complicated than it actually is.
