Angle brackets in text fields are not properly escaped when the EAD files are produced. This makes the EAD files non well-formed.

To reproduce:

  1. create a new archival description;
  2. add this text in the Archivist's note: "This should be escaped: A < B";
  3. save;
  4. click on Export -> EAD 2002 XML;
  5. the browser will complain about the file being non well-formed.

This bug is present in 2.0.x (tested in the current online demo site) and 2.x from git (2014-06-23).
