Yes, it was trying to render the DTML in your text. If you had used <
instead of < it would have not caused an error. You didn't follow the
instructions, which turn out to be inadequate anyway :-) It turns out there are
more character entity substitutions that must be done in order to make the
structured text display as intended, like changing " to " for email
Anyway, I made those edits and I believe it now displays as you intended. Check
it out at http://zdp.zope.org/guide/contributions/chapter1/25
But it's ugly. In my browser (Netscape 4.6 Linux), the lines don't wrap, so I
must scroll to even read it.
My solution for now will be to eliminate structured text as an option. Paul and
Michel said a Better Way is coming, I can wait.
