Yes, see <> as test.  (Play
with <`> and <'> to get rid of the "You are using a browser that does
not parse HTML according to published standards"...)
You should remove the <![INCLUDE[ ... ]]> around the last part to
see how the inner thing gets prettylighted on its own.

Another thing you can do now:

    <an> example of <sgml> markup that is
    not <painful> to write with < and such.

in the middle of HTML text.

(Actually someone asked for some of this stuff on
   Linkname: Lynx Development To Do List
more than a year ago.  It's under the "Standards" heading.
Some of this is SGML-ish but not XML-ish.  In any case it
is not complete.  Consider it more as improved error recovery.
Something like <em/hello/ wasn't really handled well, it could
lose a lot of text, up to the next '>'.)
