RE: [xsl] use of '>' and '<' in test

I had seen the '>' and '<' used in xpath for simular code, so assumed that
it would be OK here.

I'll use the &gt; and &lt; as per XSL

Thanks for your help, and Serdar's help too,

XMLSpy complains correctly: you can't have < and > unescaped when you're
doing strings in XML (although XPath examples would show them unescaped,
because XPath is not XML).

So, you should escape them just as you would in any other string:
<xsl:if test="$n lt; $quantity">

Remember, all XML syntax requirements still apply regardless of which
language you're expressing in it.
