As long as your HTML is formatted to XHTML specifications (closed empty
tags, quoted attribute values, etc.), then it will be considered
well-formed XML and your parser should have no problem with it., without
having to escape the brackets. If you are using a DTD, you will have to
make sure that the element that stores the HTML can have any HTML element
beneath it.
