In any place you need punctuation that would otherwise be XML syntax 
elements (i.e. everywhere except inside quoted strings), you can use the 
HTML/XML standard entities:

   <  <
   >  >
   "  "
   '  ' (I may have misremembered that one)

There are others too, but these are the ones you will need most often in 
an ALFS profile.
