Angle brackets are used in linguistics to denote orthographical writing in a context where the distinction matters like "$\langle$wh$\rangle$ is pronounced /w/ or /ʍ/ but not /hw/ in English".
However, inputting angle brackets is difficult in markdown, and this help page is silent about them. Naively entering them with "greater than" and "less than" signs leads to disappearing text (
<wh> is rendered
So: Is there a simple method of entering angle brackets here (I can pick some angle bracket out of a Unicode table, but I do not consider this a simple method)? Can this method be documented in the help center?
P.S. Of course, LaTeX support would help here, as this question demonstrates.
