Well, thanks all - I was led to this page
which is a bit out of date but answered my questions. 

The idea was to have an indicator for the sorting direction of some 
columns in a table (clickable column headers). Ideally there would be 
simple little triangles, one with point up and the other point down - 
but while I can put diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades, nothing suits 

The closest was ↑ and ↓, but I find IE6 is cutting the heads 
off the arrows sometimes. And plus they are too skinny and hard to see 
at 11px Arial. So after all that we are going with good old < and 
> - oh well
