    iPod Notes - escaping characters

    Hi all,

    Sorry if this has ended up in the wrong place but I'm rather stuck.

    I've been writing a set of iPod notes that are all linked together so that I have an HTML reference with me when I'm away from work but I need to look something up (I travel a lot and books are a pain to carry). The problem I'm having though is that using &lt; and &gt; for the <> doesn't seem to hide them from the iPod as it still thinks that I have a <title> tag in there.

    Does anyone have any suggestions because I've googled myself blue in the face!

    Thanks

    If it's just for personal reference, couldn't you just not use the <>?
    [title]
    {title}
    -title-
    |title|

    etc...

    Slightly off topic, I didn't know you could do this w/ the iPod... or that it reads html. Could you explain more? I'd like to use this myself...

    i dont think it does, i think the person is trying to use it as just a storage for data, so they may be trying to trick the ipod into thinking its not an html page

    Thanks for the replys guys.

    I'm doing an OU course and stumbled across WestCiv's podSite with their CSS guide, realised that it was far more practical to carry around my iPod with a guide on it than my iPod + large book, and wondered if I could do something similar for the HTML 4.01 Specification that I'm currently referencing constantly.

    If it works though I was going to let the guys on my course use it so would rather that all the tags looked right if that makes sense.

    Has anyone seen any more of these out on the internet because WestCiv is the only set I've found.

    Thanks
