In what context do you want these symbols rendered ?
If in some Unix X-11 or console viewer you would have to find a font face
containing the glyph in question. The he SAS system would not understand
the use of it in source as an operator.
If you want <= or >= in HTML output you can use HTML entities ≤ and
≥, take a look at http://www.dionysia.org/html/entities/symbols.html for
a sampling of what is available. Rendering may vary depending on browser.
If you want the symbol in RTF or other ODS destination you would have to
find the appropriate code that must be embedded for ending up with the
glyph you want.
