I'm looking for angle brackets which point up and down as UTF-8 characters.

Just for clarification: I need two characters, an angle bracket pointing up and one pointing down.

You can consult one of many UTF-8 character lists available on the Internet.

Example: http://www.fileformat.info/info/charset/UTF-8/list.htm



You could use:

  • ︿ / ︿ : ︿ aka «Vertical Left Angle Bracket», ref
  • ﹀ / ﹀ : ﹀ aka «Vertical Right Angle Bracket» ref

Logical and and logical or are two other search terms that should give some options. E.g.:

∧ ⋀ ⋏ ⩑ ⩞ ⩠ Logical and

∨ ⋁ ⋎ ⩒ ⩣ ⩢ Logical or

You can use left or right angle bracket, or lower than / greater than chars, with css rotation :

I found these 2 options at www.w3schools.com:

&#8896; for ⋀ or &#x39B; for Λ
