## Best Answer

The glyphs

`<`

and`>`

have usually no place in typeset text, except in mathematical formulas. In a math formula,`<`

and`>`

produce the right symbol:will provide the right spacing and letter shape.

You can still get those glyphs in normal text with

`\textless`

and`\textgreater`

, provided you loadHowever, I don't recommend using them outside math formulas. You might want to use

`\textlangle`

and`\textrangle`

in text, that produce different glyphsFor these either you use math mode (they are called

`\langle`

and`\rangle`

) or loadIn order to print %, just type

`\%`

.
