The Equality method defines the equality operator for Double values.

If two Double::NaN values are tested for equality by using the equality operator, the result is false; two Double::NaN values are not considered equal. If they are tested for equality by calling the Equals method, the result is true. When you want to determine whether the value of a Double is not a number (NaN), an alternative is to call the IsNaN method.
