Often times you see stylish fancy HTML symbols on webpages. These symbols actually look like HTML text icons and can easily be used in place of a PNG image. Because these are text symbols, you have full control on their color and size. You can use CSS to alter the color and size of these HTML text symbols. These symbols include icons for scissors, stars, flowers, pencils, numbers, arrows and leaves etc. Following table gives you these symbols as well as codes for displaying them on your webpage.
In the above list, if you see an empty character —it means no Unicode has yet been defined for that code. In case you see a gibberish box instead proper character, it means your computer does not have appropriate glyph to display that character.
