[whatwg] Parsing - Tokenisation: Tag Open State: Handling <>

When the parser encounters <>, the '<' switches to the tag open state
and then the '>' immediately switches back to the data state, thus
effectively ignoring them. However, all browsers I tested (including
IE, FF, Opera and Safari) actually omit <> as character data first.
Suggested change, within the Tag Open State:
U+003E GREATER-THAN SIGN (>)
Easy parse error. Emit a U+003C LESS-THAN SIGN
and U+003E GREATER-THAN SIGN character tokens.
Switch to the data state.
