Ihave trouble with "<" sign in abstract text ar

I have a problem with "<" sign in abstract text area. When I paste an copied abstract that included "<" sign (for example p<.005) to abstract text area, all words vanished after "<" sign.
How can I solve this problem?

Hi Necdet,

OJS allows the use of HTML in article abstracts, and assumes that when you use < and > characters you're typing in HTML. To use those characters, either use &lt; in place of < and &gt; in place of > or, better yet, make use of the TinyMCE plugin. See "System Plugins" in the Journal Manager's interface.
