Literal character in code example

How do I set the open and close arrows as literal characters so that they aren't interpreted as code? For example, the "<int>" in the following is referencing an integer:

<code>List<int> GetAvailableDays(ref InOut inOut, DateTime month, int loanID);</code>

You can use something like this

Yes, thanks. That's what I eventually figured out I had to do. Fortunately, they don't change the code samples very often.
