What do entities: < and > stand for?

I know what these entities are used for, but I am curious for where they stand for.

Does

<
stand for something like "Left tag" or is it just a code?

Maybe I can use the abbreviation as a mnemonic.

Answer

&lt; stands for the less-than sign ( < ) and &gt; stands for the greater-than sign ( > )
