Description Paolo de Magistris 2004-08-31 23:29:57 UTC
Studying "Naive set theory" I've noticed that the symbol 
usually adopted to mean : "item x belongs to set A" which
should resemble x C A (where I used C since I cannot draw 
how it actually is, but imagine a semi-circle open to the 
right with an horizontal - in the middle)is instead 
represented on my screen by a small closed square. Since 
the symbols used for Union of sets or intersection of sets
are those always used, I suspect that my computer uses a 
set of characters' codes different from Yours. Have I got 
the real reason? Thanks a lot, Paolo de Magistris,Italy.

Please provide the code you entered when reporting problems. The code for the
"is in this set" symbol is "\in". Union and intersection, I think, are "\cup"
and "\cap", respectively.

Can the original reporter provide more information please?
Comment 3 Zigger 2005-06-19 06:19:34 UTC
Resolving as invalid, due to lack of information despite requests ten and eight
months ago.  Please re-open when more details are provided.
