POST request Postdata



Guys, I'm getting strange error with POST request: Postdata: Character sequences ('<...>') which can potentially form a tag are not allowed here AFAIK, it’s perfectly normal to have </> characters is POST DATA. What do I do wrong? I can post same data via cURL without error.

post postdata tag
