I concur.

In most pre-formatted blocks, "<" and ">" are represented as "<" and
">", respectively, in both the original Wiki source text as well as
the compiled help file for POV-Ray for Windows; not so in the case of
the max_extent example: There, literal "<" and ">" are used in the Wiki
source, and also exported as such to the compiled help file.

The Wiki seems to be robust enough to display the text as intended, but
the help file viewer apparently misinterprets it as a (malformed) HTML
tag. The text is actually in the help file, but it's not displayed.
