Okay, so the line

The "" before "<" and ">" tells the shell those are just characters, not commands (the default way the shell looks at those two).

should be something like

The backslash character before "<" and ">" tells the shell those are just characters, not commands (the default way the shell looks at those two).

Ooh, robh's tip is even better. Replace line two with

alias myextip 'wget -q -O /dev/stdout http://tools.lyceum.net/network/showmyip | grep H1 | sed "s|</*H1>||g" '

No backslashes needed this time :-)
