Description

19 years ago
This is a 4.xP issue only. Simply: Nav4.x (and IE) treat '<<' as
equivalent to '&lt;<'.  5.0 has treats it differently -- see attached
short test case. Example line:

    <<a href="foo.html">some text</a>>

(Found while looking into a separate issue on bug #4142. Tested May20 &
May23 win95 builds).
