Summary14311: Attribute values beginning with a "<"-sign are omitted during SPSS export

When using the functionality SPSS-export to export survey results, attributes are usually exported as string variables. If the string begins with a "<" (less-than) sign, the result is omitted for that case.

Steps To Reproduce

Create a survey with participant list, assign an attribute, give the attribute a string value beginning with "<", fill in the surveys, then export the responses for SPSS.
The .dat file will have empty cells where the "<" should be, and the resulting .sav file will show these cells as missing values.
