Because in HTML and PHP, < and > open and close tags and <s in usernames would probably confuse the code.

We could allow all sorts of crazy characters in usernames but I'm too lazy.

It would only screw up code that wasn't expecting it.

And I don't feel like writing code that expects everything.

Also, symbols in names look silly.

Half on topic, isn't there an actor who changed his name to the male and female symbols?

Dunno, but Prince was briefly known as a funky character (I don't have the unicode for it).

LOL. The Prince symbol should totally be in Unicode.

This was Prince's name. I'm pretty sure there was an actor who changed his name to some symbol.
