How can I replace the '<=' in below xml snipet with its hexidecimal equivilent? Syntax must be compatible within xml stream. Im running a Reg Gate db script and I believe that the < is not being translated correctly on Chinese OS.

IF (@IsPortfolioDatabase = 1 AND @ReleaseVersion  <= @TargetVersion)

I tried 0x3c;= but doesnt work.

&lt; is the "entitized" version of the less-than sign <

This statement, when the entities are not present, would be like this:
IF (@IsPortfolioDatabase = 1 AND @ReleaseVersion  <= @TargetVersion)

The XML and HTML entities are discussed in detail here:

It turns out that the &lt; is recongined correctly on chinese OS so that was not my problem but thanks for the wiki link. Should come in handy latter.
