Separation Hyperplane Theorem

let A and B two disjoint closed convex subsets of R^n.
Then the standard separation hyperplane theorem states
that there exists some linear functional such that
L(x) <= L(y) for every x in A and y in B. I think that
actually a stronger result holds, that is there exists
a linear functional L such that L(x) < L(y) for every
x in A and y in B. What do you think about?
Note that I have supposed that A and B are closed.
Thank you very much in advance for your attention.
My Best Regards,
Maury Barbato
