    At well-order, the third para of the section ’Definition’, the first line is missing the symbol \preceq (in Firefox), as is the first line of the 4th para. Not sure what it is mean to be, but it is discussed in contrast with \prec.

    The symbol is defined in the second paragraph of that section. It should be \prec with an equals sign under it, to mean (roughly) ’precedes or equals’.

    I can see it on Firefox 3.6 on Windows 7, using the default fonts. (And I’m sure that I’ve seen it in the past on Firefox 3.0 running under Gnome on Ubuntu 8, both using the default fonts and Deja Vu fonts.)

    And here it is on the Forum:

    \preceq

    Thanks, Toby. It’s missing in that I can’t see it in Firefox 3.0.11 on the system at work (which is far from optimal).It’s not here in the forum either, but it’s not the end of the world. :)
