Support of unicode operators like ≠?

In middle school we had an experimental course in programming. The environment had been optimised for children-friendliness, which meant LogoWriter translated into Russian. For some reason, using roots from the same language I think in to instruct a computer felt far weirder than other, more mainstream programming languages with English-based keywords felt later. This was in DOS, so the encoding was probably CP866.

The actual reason for the weirdness may have been Logo's LISP ancestry mixed with an attempt to read like natural language, though.
