HTML Question

How to escape < and > inside <pre> tags

I'm trying to write a blog post which includes a code segment inside a

<pre>
tag. The code segment includes a generic type and uses
<>
to define that type. This is what the segment looks like:

<pre>
PrimeCalc calc = new PrimeCalc();
Func<int, int> del = calc.GetNextPrime;
</pre>


The resulting HTML removes the
<>
and ends up like this:

PrimeCalc calc = new PrimeCalc();
Func del = calc.GetNextPrime;


How do I escape the
<>
so they show up in the HTML?

Answer
<pre>
    PrimeCalc calc = new PrimeCalc();
    Func&lt;int, int&gt; del = calc.GetNextPrime;
</pre>
