SQL Character Display (Greater Than Or Equal)

I'm thinking this should be easier than appears.  I'm trying to create string that will display a "=" character (greater than or equal).  I've tried the obvious things such as char(242), but that doesn't seem to do the trick.

Looked on the web and couldn't find it.  Time to call in the 'experts'.

Do you want a string with "="symbol like ===================================

Sorry, no.  I want a "greater than nor equal" symbol.  I actually  had pasted in the symbol (which I grabbed from Word), but it looks like when it posted the question, it changed it.  This is similar to what I'm experiencing in SQL.  I just need a basic greater than or equal symbol.  Who'd have thought that would be so difficult to figure out.

If you can help, it would be appreciated.

Still did not understand, so you want a string like

If yes, what is the length of the string?

you refer to this character:

this depends on the character set that is used to diplay the data, I indeed have the same problem to reproduce the character.

if the output is for the html forms, it should be "easy" to use the html entity ...
