< in messages

I’m in conflict with Verdy_p about these messages:

Verdy_p wants to turn < into &lt;. However, entities are escaped in these messages where they are included, so the messages are displayed as they are (with entity codes). You can see that on Special:PageMigration (you need to be a translation admin), trying to type anything in the field then submitting.

Verdy_p, in my diff comment, I had given you a proof YOU can check because you ARE a translation admin on meta wiki!

No, your sample page does not work for translation admins. It is only for sysadmins.

The general guideline is to use what the source uses and not worry about escaping things (in fact, if you would need to worry about escaping, that would be a security issue). I see no reason to deviate from this guideline here.
