I'm pretty sure default fontconfig configuration will attempt to fall
back to another font if available. I just don't happen to have any
fonts that cover "Miscellaneous Mathematical Symbols-A" block.

My point is probably opposite of Marc's, avoid unicode characeters
unless absolutely needed, and in this case '<' and '>' should work
just fine. Please don't update css to add more fonts because of me.
