Data Generator Error

I'm trying to use the built-in data generator in SSI Web 8. When I try to run it, after a few completes, it generates an error that says, "Data generation encountered an error on page X for respondent XXXXX." And then it gives me some html code showing me where the error lies. Any suggestions on what's going wrong here?

You may want to check your list of attributes or levels for a operator sign (such as > or <) in the display text. If this is the case, you need to use the equivalent html entity code instead. Below is a partial table of commonly used codes.
