this depends on the fonts you use, and cmr's don't always have them; one 
way to get them is $<$ but this is uglu, another way is to switch to a 
monospaced font (\tt or so); in case of <>| being active chars, \string< 
and \string> does wonders, although this is pretty ugly in the source; 
actually, any decent verbatim environment should provide you the means to 
display these chars.
