How to query using CAML when a value has < in the value

I am trying to update a field named Title using caml query. The value that i am trying to put is <title>.

If i replace the "<" character with "&lt;" and the ">" character with "&gt;", when i view the item properties on SharePoint the value of the field Title is &lt;title&gt;.

How can i fix this.

Thank you for your time.
