Thanks - I've repaired Office 2016 (online), but unfortunately no improvement.

However, a solution is to use Word AutoCorrect, e.g. '<' automatically replaced with '' as you type.

You can use WordPad Find & Replace as a solution. You do not need Office 2016, to do this.

WordPad would accept a '<' in the Find what box; and a '' in the Replace with box. And WordPad will succeed with a correct replacement.

You can use Character Map to obtain the initial '' and '' characters.

From Character Map, click on the character you wish to copy and then click Copy. Then click Paste into the WordPad editor's Replace with box.
