IF (simple coding problem)

Hi,

I am having troulbe using the IF operator. Logically, what I am doing makes sense but it doesn't give the correct output so obviously somethings going wrong. Trying to keep it simple (so as not to confuse things), when I input:

T=301
if 290<T<300
a=1
else
a=2
end

It always give me a=1?? To me, this code says if T is between 290 and 300 (which it isn't) a=1, any other value and a=2. Why then is it giving me a=1 and how can I rectify this? Is it something to do with the '<' symbols?
