I've got a pretty simple javascript being dropped into a landing page. I created an editable field in the template, so that should I need any javascript on a page, I can just add it when I'm setting a new one up. (in template like this: )


            // <![CDATA[

                 {{my.Footer js}}
            // ]]>


But... I just ran into an oddball issue. I dropped in a really simple JS and it's converting my "greater than" symbol to html character. Is there a way to prevent this, or does somebody know maybe another way to do the below and avoid the problem? the script won't fire because it's showing "&gt; -1" EDIT: I should add that I did try to escape it with />, but that didn't work either.


$(document).ready(function () {

if ('choice=chocolate') > -1) {

    alert('yes choc');

} else {

    alert('no choc');
