For numbers, the operands are widened to the least common type (Integer is preferable to Long; Long is preferable to Single; Single is preferable to Double). For Strings, the comparison is case-sensitive, and is based on the collating sequence used by the language specified by the user using the Windows Control Panel. The result is 0 for FALSE and -1 for TRUE.
