Thanks for the fix!

Not XML escaping \< etc seems like an out and out bug to me, the only time
one would want those to appear as literals is if you've escaped to Docbook.

Ah wait... after your fix, then the "=\<=" used in the regx docs *is*
correctly escaped. BTW the regex library appears to be the only
documentation effected by this.

Thanks, John.
