What does the no greater than symbol look like?

In the same way that a diagonal line through the equals symbol changes equals (=) to does not equal (&acirc;&permil;&nbsp;), a near-vertical line through the greater than symbol (&gt;), changes it to not greater than. Unfortunately I cannot find it in my symbols set. One alternative, of course, is to change the equation around: x not greater than y is the same as x less than or equal to (&acirc;&permil;&curren;) y. When inverting the equation in this fashion, you do need to remember to add = if it was not there and remove it if it was. ie not (greater than) is the same as less than or equal to not (greater than or equal to) is the same as less than not (less than) is the same as greater than or equal to not (less than or equal to) is the same as greater than
