$DateAttribute < "date"
Gathers all notes whose DateAttribute value is before the given date. The left-side date cannot be less than 'never'.
$NumberAttribute < number
Gathers all notes whose NumberAttribute value is smaller than the given number.
Boolean. A 'true' is always greater than 'false'.
Color. Tinderbox does not perform greater/less than comparisons on Color-type attributes.
Sets. Tinderbox does not perform greater/less than comparisons on Set-type attributes.
String. A lexical comparison is done of each string character by character, i.e. the ASCII value of each first character, then each second character, etc. Uppercase characters < lowercase < numbers. For other characters , accents, etc, comparisons are likely to not meet linguistic expectation as the values will be based on Unicode sort order. Thus
"dog" > "cat"
"dog" > "Dog"
"dogs" > "dog"
"dogs" > "dogma"
"dogs" < "døg" NOTE!
