42S: All 12 comparisons present
32SII: All 12 comparisons present

The subject could be extended to also list the tests which work with alphanumerics in those models having them.

For instance, perhaps X=Y? works for either numbers or alpha strings while X<Y? may or may not work with alpha strings (which would allow sorting easily).

Thus, I suggest to expand the table to include tests which do work with alpha data in models having alpha capabilities. It would be informative and can include a surprise or two.
