 I just found that it is not possible to type in angle brackets ('<'
and '>').

Can you?

 A also have not been able to enter those angle brackets through the
keyboard.
I can enter them using the mouse and the virtual keyboard next the
emulator, by pressing
ALT - b  for <
and
ALT - n for >

I have no idea what the logic behind this is, as many keys in
combination with ALT do not fit to what is shown on the virtual
display.

 After reboot emulator, I confirm the inability to type in characters
'<' and '>' in EditText.

Is it a bug or intented disallowance???

 If you are trying to type these characters on your PC keyboard...
well any keyboard being used on the phone is not going to be a PC
keyboard, and in particular won't have the < and > keys where they
are.  You should use the keyboard in the skin to work with the
emulator like you would on a real device; being able to type on the
computer keyboard is just a convenience, and at this point it is not
surprising if some things don't work due to differences in the
keyboards.

Fwiw, I believe in the current emulator both the PC keyboard and the
on-screen skin keyboard deliver events to the same Linux device, which
has a keymap configured like the layout of a keyboard on a real
device, so it is very difficult to emulate the PC keyboard completely.
