Greater (or less) than or equal symbol

Help!. I'd like to show traditional "lesser-than-or-equal" and
"greater-than-or-equal" symbols in a title or label fields but can't
find anything in the documentation and I've tried a number of guesses
but to no avail. Given the range of mathematical expressions that
matplot can support I'm sure there is something better than "<=". Thanks
in advance.

You can use the \leq latex symbol when using either the mathtext module.
See the screenshots page for a demo of it.

Also, this page contains a list of latex math symbols.

Frank:

Try this:

>>> from pylab import *
>>> plot([1,2,3])
>>> title(u'\N{GREATER-THAN OR EQUAL TO}')
>>> show()
