You are lucky, there is a solution: As in html, you can use character entities 
to substitute certain characters. So, you simply replace 
"<" by "&lt;" and
">" by "&gt;"

This keeps the SAX-Parser from interpreting "x<4.5" as a broken markup. And 
XmlBlaster seems intelligent enough to expand those character entities, 
before evaluating the XPATH-Expression. 

(I just ran a quick test and it seemed to work)

Have a nice weekend,
