No

Is: If the document is not saved, the preliminary number is displayed in "<>".
Should be: replace /</ with "&lt;" (or did you mean an empty tag here?)

    I agree that it is going to be displayed as <> in the data field but that was not my point.
    My point was what it looks like in the documentation provided.
    The statement
    If the document is not saved, the preliminary number is displayed in "<>"
    renders as
    If the document is not saved, the preliminary number is displayed in ""
    where the quotes, if you use a DOM inspector, contain an empty (invalid) tag.
    While I am not sure the Comment field is rendered as HTML, I suspect it is so because other comments do contain valid HTML tags and their only purpose is to provide formatting.

    Please note that it is not enough to rip this comment of HTML tags; since there is currently no way to tell a HTML comment form a text one without inspection, you would have to remove markup from all comments throughout the system. While it is possible, I can see no merit here.
