To define a start tag, "<" can't be followed by a space " ", so foo < bar foo< bar could (and I think should) be valid XML and be equal to foo & bar foo& bar In fact, "<" not followed by a valid start tag character (http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-xml-20081126/#NT-NameStartChar) should represent the "<" character. As a user, I think it's a *lot* more readable, and could avoid quite a lot of XML errors (especially on the web). By the way, XSLT programmers would benefit a lot of this: select="$a << $b" instead of select="$a << $b" test="$sum < 100" instead of select="$sum < 100" :) Even if "foo < bar" was not always serialized as "foo < bar", if every parser understands this new norm, a converter could be used to generate this "compact syntax".
