Answering myself: I finally resorted to inputting < and > as %3C and % 
3E respectively. I found out about this by looking at how Adobe  
Reader translates < and > in its warning asking whether one should  
block or authorize access to the link destination.

I don't know where this syntax is referenced, it seems writing %  
followed by the UTF-8 reference of a character yields this character  
in a URL.

Of course, in LaTeX a % must be escaped as \%. Which yields


instead of


Too bad this prevents automation!

PS: BTW, does anyone know how to prevent creation of the folder ~/ 
Documents/Updater5/ every time Adobe Reader is launched? Those pesky  
Adobe habits!
