XML headaches

According to a handy little book I own, 'XML - in easy steps', > is
the standard way to represent '>' in node contents, so it should work.
 But it also mentions that you can use the unicode character code
'&#nnn;'  for non standard characters.

I tried a simplified test here on Windows and > worked fine

on mouseUp
    put "<node>2>1</node>" into tvar
    put revCreateXMLTree(tVar, false, true, false) into tTree
    put revXMLrootnode(tTree) into tNode
    put revXMLNodeContents(tTree, tNode) into tContents
    answer tContents
end mouseUp

I also tried adding this line after the first line and it made no
difference to the outcome:
put unidecode(uniencode(tvar,"UTF8"),"ANSII") into tVar

I also tried it successfully using <node>2>1</node>
