I would like to type

< X >

without the spaces. Doing so (at least without the first space) yields no character at all.

Typing the same in code mode works:

<X>

<x> could work

Use plain html if the markdown parser doesn't behave like you want to

&lt;x>

See What HTML tags are allowed on Stack Exchange sites? and this answer from slhck

Use html character entity references so for < type &lt; and for > type &gt;

So if you type this &lt;X&gt; you'd see it as this: <X>
