What does the <> tags in VB.Net mean?  For instance, when I set up a webservice, I insert the following line of code: <System.Web.Services.WebMethod()> .  

I've tried searching to no avail....

Thanks!

They denote an attribute. The following revolves around C#, but the information applies to VB.NET as well. The only difference is that C# uses [] where VB.NET uses <>.

P.S.

I desribed <> as you demonstrated above. However, one thing that VB.NET has which C# does not is XML literals. You can actually embed raw XML into your code (and use it within LINQ queries as well). That's an additional use of <> you may see in code from time to time.
