I tend to stay away from ">" or "|" or "/" as menu path delimiters, because
each of these symbols has a grammatical meaning in software.

Instead I use the arrow character in symbol font (Ctrl-q . in FrameMaker,
use the insert symbol in Word), so it looks something like this
File->Open->whatever. Of course the "->" is only a single character looking
like an arrow.
