U+2266 was added to Unicode in version 1.1 (1993). It belongs to the block Mathematical Operators in the Basic Multilingual Plane.

This character is a Math Symbol and is commonly used, that is, in no specific script.

The glyph is not a composition. It has a Ambiguous East Asian Width. In bidirectional context it acts as Other Neutral and is mirrored. Its corresponding mirrored glyph is . In text U+2266 behaves as Ambiguous regarding line breaks. It has type Other for sentence and Other for word breaks. The Grapheme Cluster Break is Any.

The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

Not to be confused with Inequation. "Less than", "Greater than", and "More than" redirect here. For the use of the "<" and ">" signs as punctuation, see Bracket. For the UK insurance brand "More Th>n", see RSA Insurance Group.In mathematics, an

inequalityis a relation that holds between two values when they are different (see also: equality).

- The notation
a≠bmeans thataisnot equal tob.It does not say that one is greater than the other, or even that they can be compared in size.

If the values in question are elements of an ordered set, such as the integers or the real numbers, they can be compared in size.

- The notation
a<bmeans thataisless thanb.- The notation
a>bmeans thataisgreater thanb.In either case,

ais not equal tob. These relations are known asstrict inequalities. The notationa<bmay also be read as "ais strictly less thanb".In contrast to strict inequalities, there are two types of inequality relations that are not strict:

- The notation
a≤bmeans thataisless than or equal tob(or, equivalently,not greater thanb, orat mostb).- The notation
a≥bmeans thataisgreater than or equal tob(or, equivalently,not less thanb, orat leastb).An additional use of the notation is to show that one quantity is much greater than another, normally by several orders of magnitude.

- The notation
a≪bmeans thataismuch less thanb. (In measure theory, however, this notation is used for absolute continuity, an unrelated concept.)- The notation
a≫bmeans thataismuch greater thanb.
