this works (on your input)... although probably not the best

echo "this is a <test> of removing <text> outside brackets" | tr '<' '\012' | grep ">" | cut -d">" -f1 | tr '\012' ' '

how about perl:

	my @tmp=$_=~/(<[^>]*>)/g;
	print join " ",@tmp;
	print "\n";
this is a <test> of removing <text> outside brackets
this <is> a <test> of removing <text> outside brackets
