Superset

$\supset$ is sometimes used to mean:

$S$ is a superset of $T$

in the sense that $S$ is permitted to equal $T$.

That is, for which we have specified as $S \supseteq T$.

Although many sources use this interpretation, it is emphatically not recommended, as it can be the cause of considerable confusion.
