I have a memo containing HTML code. The first character must be a <.   How can I add a < if it isn't there but not if it is already there?

I use Delphi 6. I need a quick answer so I will give the maximum 500 points.  Thanks for your help.

Maybe like this:

if (Memo1.Lines[0]+#32)[1] <> '<' then
  Memo1.Lines[0] := '<' + Memo1.Lines[0];

Or maybe if the first line can be empty or whitespace before is allowed:

for liLine := 0 to Memo1.Lines.Count-1 do
begin
  if Trim(Memo1.Lines[liLine]) > '' then
  begin
    if Trim(Memo1.Lines[liLine][1] <> '<' then
      Memo1.Lines[liLine] := '<' + Memo1.Lines[liLine];
  end;
end;

Type in last comment:

if Trim(Memo1.Lines[liLine][1] <> '<' then
should read
if Trim(Memo1.Lines[liLine])[1] <> '<' then
