Cell["\<\ ... \>", ... ; TextData[...]

When I examine the source code of Mathematica notebooks, I often
see Cell objects whose first argument is preceded by 

"\<\

and followed by

\
\>"

E.g.

Cell["\<\
Yet another undocumented item.\
\>", "Text"...

What do these delimiters mean?  And how do they differ from the
TextData symbol?  (The latter is also undocumented, but at least
I've seen "cameo appearances" of it in the documentation.)

TIA!
