Minor Keyboard Problem !

I have a little keyboard problem. Se i can't use the ">" and "<" signs, this is very frustrating as i write alot of HTML.

I use a swedish keyboard, so i've set it up for "se" in xf86config, and everything else works, cept for thoose 2 signs.

They work fine before i "startx". I don't know what more info you need. Plz tell me and i'll give it to you.

and then the "se" statement.
