I think the source is nonsense -- or, at best, ambiguous -- if translation
to HTML with MathML is envisioned.  For example, is this an abuse of math
because the user does not know about \textless or how to obtain U+2329?  If
it's indeed intended as math, is this an attempt to use \langle (U+27E8) as
an ordinary math symbol other than a group opener?  Or is it intended to be
the empty group properly marked up with
"\left\langle{}\right." ?

It's not clear what a sensible translation should be.
