Los galos (los franceses) no son gallegos. Excuse the pun.

I like the pun. As we say in English, you could say that again. Lo que me
confundia fue ><. ¿Usas >< para significar desigual?

Poli, I don't have an unequal symbol in my Spanish keyboard. Have you got one? Of course, I could have looked for it in the ASCII code or whatever, but I didn't. This is not the first time I see this pair of symbols meaning unequal, but it's not a convention, just a lazy habit.

I checked character encoding but couldn't find the unequal ALT
177 looked like it, but it's not quite right.

I've seen >< be used as a smilie to mean an angry face

Also in some programming languages <> and != mean unequal.
