Observe the tag wiki for the infinite-stratos tag at Anime.SE. As of now, the excerpt reads:

infinite-stratos tag wiki excerpt

If you try to edit the tag wiki, you'll see that the angle brackets there are literal angle brackets < and >, not HTML entities &lt; and &gt;:

IS <Infinite Stratos> is a light novel series by Izuru Yumizuru with illustrations by Okiura and CHOCO.

The angle brackets are also displayed correctly in the hover-popup:

However, if you go to the tagged questions page for the infinite-stratos tag, the text <Infinite Stratos> is missing, presumably eaten by some sort of HTML processor.

/questions/tagged/infinite-stratos

Looking at the page source suggests that the problem lies somewhere upstream - the <p> tag that contains the excerpt text contains the following, without the angle brackets or their contents.

IS  is a light novel series by Izuru Yumizuru with illustrations by Okiura and CHOCO.

Changing the literal angle brackets to entities isn't a fix for this problem - if you do that, then the tag wiki displays the entities literally as &lt; and &gt; without converting them to < and >.
