I'm trying to include the 'correct' symbol for ">=" in the legend text box in a graph. Looking through the archives, I found Nick Cox's article on inserting awkward characters in stata which recommended using the 'char' command with the ASCII codes. This would have worked, but the ASCII code for ">=" comes under the extended list (code- 242) and this produces a different character which corresponds to 242 in the ANSI list. It looks like ">=" doesn't exist in the ANSI list!
