From the FM:
Comparing numeric operands When the algebraic values of numeric operands are compared:
v The length (number of digits) of the operands is not significant.
v Unsigned numeric operands are considered positive.
v Zero is considered to be a unique value regardless of sign.
v Comparison of numeric operands is permitted regardless of the type of USAGE specified for each.
