Hm, I don't know offhand if it's "official" or not, but there are two
tags to do this:

less than (<) is "&lt;"
greater than (>) is "&gt;"

The semi-colon is part of the tag. The quotes aren't. These
tags are kinda necessary, since otherwise it's impossible to put
examples of HTML tags in a web page. Since some of the earliest web
pages were on how to write web pages, I suspect they ran into this
issue quite early on :-).
