Well, check out Michael Kay's XSLT Programmer's Reference
under the xsl:text element.  It gives an example of
where <xsl:text/> is useful for controlling whitespace.  8^)

Dennis also mentioned that using '>' in <xsl:if> test attributes
worked.  Kay's book points out that only '<' needs to
be escaped as '&lt;' in attribute values, and not '>'.
I guess I do both out of habit so I don't have to remember
which is which.
