comment What is the name of the symbols “<” and “>”?
And their names are STAGO and TAGC. (Or rather, that's what their names used to be back when HTML was based off of SGML.)

comment Non-residential vs non–residential (short or long hyphen)
In your post, the second one is a dash, not a hyphen. My gut feeling says, use a hyphen. Non-residential, or even, non‐residential.

@MrShibby I know several people who don't love cats. Those people don't love dogs either though.

comment Is “I like dogs but cats” a valid sentence?
The funny thing is that if you try to emulate Visual Studio and you say, "I like all but cats", it has a wholly different meaning.

comment Single word for “pleasant to look at”
Right. When I read the title, I immediately thought "what's wrong with beautiful?" Also I wonder why none of the answers mentions this.
