XSLt generates XML (normally) in XML < signs have to be quoted .

If you use the html output method many characters will be written out as
entity references automatically. You should almost never use
disable-output-encoding as it is explictly non portable ans will not
work in many situations.

You are generating SVG it seems, you shouldn't need to do anything
special with entities at all any SVG system will have an XML parser and
will understand the default output from XSLT.
