    Nook Virtual Keyboard missing symbols

      My Nook's virtual keyboard is missing the symbols "<" and ">" (less than and greater than). I've hit ALT when on the symbols/numbers keyboard and still can't find them.

       

      Does anyone have any ideas where these symbols might be hiding?

          :Interesting, I've never noticed the absence and couldn't find them on either the Nook or Swiftkey keyboards - guess the Nook is not going to work for HTML programming. If you have an HD/HD+, I reckmmend the Swiftkey app from the GoPS, I think it costs $2.99 or so, but it's worth it just for the cursor control keys!

              Hold you finger down on the parentheses. You slide your finger up to choose.  Likewise for other symbols and accents. I just wish there was a map for these extra symbols, but they are there.

                  <Thanks! Thought I'd tried that on both. One nicec thing about Swiftkey is that it shows the "primary" long press character in the upper corner of the keys on the main kyboard.>

                Thanks, everyone. I don't have Swiftkey, but the holding down of the parens revealed 3 keys (including the missing > and < symbols).

                 

                I appreciate the quick responses.
