The contents of my hint column in XLSForms does not appear in my survey for questions with integer types.  They show up fine in my text type questions.

Thanks for responding Jim. I did a little more digging and found out I had a “<” character in the hint which is apparently not allowed. It’s all good now. Cheers.

Hi Michael

Great to hear you've discovered the cause. The hint column supports some HTML formatting, so the 'less than' symbol could be confused for the start of an HTML tag. However, the '<' symbol should work if separated by spaces or by using its HTML character code &lt; as documented here: Known issues—Survey123 for ArcGIS | Documentation 

So 50 < 100 and 50&lt;100 will work but 50<100 will not.

Best,

Jim
