Description

While I was writing one of my Blog posts, I wanted to highlight a word by putting it between '>>' and '<<'.

After I published the post, the title was cut after the first '<'.

I tried to republish the post, but nothing changed. I then chose to type '&lt;' for the second '<' and it worked flawlessly.

By title you mean the <title> in <head> or h1/h2?

Titles can support HTML in them, this is why you need to use &lt;. If you were running as a lower-level user, without unfiltered HTML, the post title would convert it automatically.
