Art, I think it depends on the character set. DOS codes (alt-242) seem to
include them, but DOS was notorious for having its own implementation of
things. Dos and alt+3 digit is usually code page 437, which has as you note
≥ at 242 etc.; but that is neither particularly standard (except in
SAS appears (on my Windows 7 installation at least) to support CP-1252 and
not CP-437, hence ò not ≥. (Alt+0+242 gives the CP-1252 value, by the
way). CP-1252 does not have ≥ or ≤ available in it. I'd be curious to see
if other SAS installations support CP 437.
