Greater than valid attribute



Hi list,

I was one thought that the > and < signs were reserved signs and can not be
used in an attribute unless writing &lt; and &gt;
so please explain to me why the greater than sign can be be used within an
attribute value.

Example:
<myxml>
	<mytag att=' content of attribute > something'/>
</myxml>

All the xml parsers I have worked with validates the above to be
well-formed.

?
