Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the <> (inequality) operator to compare two numbers or to compare two strings.

Parameters:

The operands value1 and value2 can be numbers, literal strings of characters (delimited with double quotes), or any sources of value.

Comments:

When comparing strings, the <> operator compares the two values character by character, using the ASCII value of each character. If the caseSensitive property is true, the comparison between two strings treats uppercase letters as coming before lowercase letters, so "A" <> "a". If the caseSensitive property is false, the comparison is not case-sensitive, so "a" is considered equivalent to "A".

Support for the combined inequality symbol, (HTML entity &ne;), is included on Mac OS and OS X for HyperCard compatibility, but does not work on Windows or *nix systems.
