True! Even hacking .ps doesn't work as if I open the .ps file as in notepad and change the symbol using the one from the character map, I still have to save it with ANSI coding. If I keep it as ANSI and force it to save, the ">' disappears and the "=" remains. It doesn't look like unicode is compatible with .ps. I'll post a listing if I figure out a way to this.
