GeneralWhat do you call yours? [Modified for clarity] [modified] PinmemberStewart Judson21-Feb-14 0:22 
We realized we didn't have a succinct name for something today & wondered if anyone else had.
These are bracket ()
These are braces or curly brackets {}
These are quotation marks ""
But these are less-than, greater-than signs <>
Hardly rolls off the tongue, does it?
How about pointy brackets?
[EDIT] I mean when used as a pair (eg in HTML tags) - individually, the names are fine
What do you think/use?
Regards, Stewart
