Use &lt; for < and &nbsp; for the HTML blank. You don't need to declare <,
because it's one of the five character entities that all XML processors are
already supposed to understand, but you do need to declare nbsp, so begin
your XSL stylesheet like this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE stylesheet [
<!ENTITY nbsp "&#x00A0;">
