special character in panel title formatted with HTML

I have a panel and I am setting the text - I want to use the >, or <  symbol
pnlToolTempValue.Text = "<html><size=28>"+"<"+ toolTempValue + "°" + "</html>";
but it does not show up = the temp and the degree symbol do but I cant get the greater than or less than to appear - probably because I am formating the text with HTML
does any one know how to add the symbols

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have to use the HTMLentities form for them.  Less than is &lt; and greater than is &gt; .
pnlToolTempValue.Text = "<html><size=28>"+"&lt;"+ toolTempValue + "°" + "</html>";
pnlToolTempValue.Text = "<html><size=28>"+" &gt;"+ toolTempValue + "°" + "</html>";
