Well, you're testing for equality, so greater than wouldn't catch a  
lot of cases.  I'd suggest these:

if     X != Y # X not equal to Y

unless X == Y # X equal to Y

You can pick the one that's more linguistically appealing to you,  
though I have a hunch that 'if' is more popular than 'unless'.
