I typed this in:

r9c6=4 => r7c6=4, r3c6=7 => r3c9=4 => r3c3!=4 => r9c3=4

I used != instead of the usual angle brackets because if I use the angle brackets I get:

r9c6=4 => r7c6=4, r3c6=7 => r3c9=4 => r3c3<4> r9c3=4

which at least on my browser does not look correct. So, how do I get the angle brackets in there?

I guess you're trying to say that r3c3 is unequal to 4, but it looks like you could say r3c3 = 6. But some here write r3c3<>4 to express the "unequal to" condition.

Nevertheless, I'd like to try to help, but I'm just not understanding exactly what symbols you're trying to show.

I just want to make the <> show up!

If there are other brackets on the same line, text gets swallowed up. It is even getting swallowed inside a code block. I tried the standard &lt; but that just printed those chars.

I figured it out by accident. If I disable HTML it works.

a<>b => c

Which I understand means "a is not b implies c"

Glad you figured it out. I know little about HTML, but I thought to get a bold "c", you needed to type:

<b>c</b)>

You are correct, <b>c</b> makes a bold c. Phpbb is changing a<>b => c into a<b> c.

this is late.
I have had this problem at times also and
I have heard of others who would type <> into the field only to see the text rearranged when posted.
not sure why it happens sometimes and not other times. I can only guess the HTML recognizes certain symbols to mean different things.

Asellus helped me here , choose: "Disable HTML in this post"
