ok

i ask it differently

In France, all teachers and school books * use //

Perhaps, in other countries, they use || ..?

@ Michael : In England perhaps..? or other countries..?


Edit * and students..!

The Unicode symbol is https://www.compart.com/en/...


It's up to the font designer whether it's rendered as || or //

This one exist too

https://www.compart.com/en/...

and it is referring to symbols that every teacher, every book, every student use in mathematics

Is the font designer a Mathematician..?

GeoGebra isn't a Mathematics Software Program..?

Why Mathematicians refuse use Mathematician's notations..?

And, in GeoGebra, || is "or" not "parallel" !

1736 is Philippine Double Punctuation


|| is OR, ∥ is parallel, they are different. If you don't like how ∥ is rendered you can complain to Unicode/Apple/Google/Microsoft/your favourite font designer - there's nothing we can do about that
