in thread string splitting with spaces and HTML

You are wrong that in HTML the mentioned >s need to be escaped. They don't. Nor do all <s be escaped. A < followed by a space is just fine. Just like <#. Don't forget that HTML is an SGML application. Real men deal with SGML. XML is for people who can't parse their way out of a wet paper bag. And in XML, such <s and >s need to be escaped.
