Good catch!
Yes, I was able to see those characters with the Windows notepad.

I looked at some of the boost headers to see if there are similar
I prepared a small test bed that I hope will show the problem with your
compiler; but since I don't have it, I will need your help to run it.

I attached a test.cpp file to this message.
It consist of 4 different variations of the LESS<> struct.
There is a 'CHOICE' macro at the beggining that you can set to the values
1,2,3 or 4.
It is defaulted to 1.

I expect that you get the same error with CHOICE 1, but that it go away with
some of the variations.

Whenever you can, could you check this out, please?

Thank you very much.
