Expression error: Unexpected < operator.

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2, …, X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.
