I'm sure you misunderstood Frans again.

It's not valid XML to use literal (not part of tags) < and >.
There is no relation to PO format at all. Maybe you refer to the fact,
that "msgfmt -cv vi.po" will not complain, that's right.

You should also understand that XML, such as DocBook, strictly separates
between content and style/formating.

If you really want e-mail addresses to look different, you should not write
<email>»me@server«</email> but <email>me@server</email> and change the style
files for <email> to produce »me@server« in the output.

I haven't tested it and it may indeed not realistic to do so, but I'm sure
your attempt will not produce valid e-mails addresses for example in HTML or
PDF, since the link would refer to »me@server« which is of course invalid.

»<email>me@server</email>« would be OK but that's no good XML!
