The special characters listed are font dependent. For example, the symbol you are looking for is 
not shown under mathematical operators in the 'Liberation Serif' font but if you select 'Linux 
Biolinum O' font, you will see it listed as hexadecimal U+226F or decimal 8815       ≯

Of course, you may not have Biolinum on your machine, but check under the various fonts you do have.

Very nice, Philip. Do you know of a quick way to query which fonts in system include a particular 
character (that is short of manually testing each font)

John, the short answer is, 'No.'   But on linux, I have Font Manager for GTK desktops and in that I 
can select the Manage function, select Mathematical Operators in the left hand column, click in the 
character panel until I find the square representing U+226F and then go down the list of fonts one 
by one.

Takes a bit of time but I never had reason to seek a faster or better way.
