I'm trying to replace greater than and less than characters in a .docx file and it seems to be completely ignoring them. I dug around in the code and I think it's due to a strip_tags() call.

Is there any way around this? I have a bunch of documents with text surrounded by <> and I need to replace those with something more useful.

Thank you!

As DOCX are XML files you can't add '<' or '>' symbols. You need to write &lt; and &gt; .
