    When using special characters like < (or using code &lt;) in a "Free Text" box or in a label, this character is not displayed or not correctly displayed.


    add new 'Text Box' -> enter text <my text>-> enter

    result: text not displayed, when editing again strange code appears



    add new 'Free Text' -> Edit HTML -> enter text <my text> -> Complete

    result: text disapears



    add new 'Free Text' -> Edit HTML -> HTML (code mode) -> enter text &lt;my text&gt;-> Update -> Complete

    result: text disapeears


    I guess, using <>, the text inside is treat as html code instead of the characters.


    Hopefully you can look at this problem showing those <> characters.
