If you look at the source code of such pages, you'll see that they use (X)HTML entities to do that. In particular, they escape (X)HTML's special symbols "<", ">" and "&" with "& lt;", "& gt;", and "& amp;" respectively.NOTE: Remove the space between the "&" and the name of the entity. I've added it because this board interprets entities.

If you want to show an entity ( < ) you can do it by adding the Ampersand entity next to it &lt;Hmm, strangely, it's not interpetting my entities.

You'll see them interpreted if you try to edit your post. I almost always notice typos after I have posted something, and go to fix them. Because of that, I now have a habbit of never using entities directly.
