symbol for "unequal"
Couldn't find symbol for "unequal," as in a unequal b, in the tutrial. ???? (equal sign with slash through it)

a \neq b gives $a \neq b$

Or, more generally, you can do \not=. The \not introduces a slash through the next symbol. For example: A\not\subset B.

Many thanks for that. Sooner or later I would have wondered about "is not a subset of."

Would have simply thanked you but couldn't find the icon for "thanks" this time.

Whoops. Now I see it. Sorry.
