    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.
