Forgive me if I appear thick, but this is poor to say the least if I'm
following this right.
I want to use a tick and a tick in a box on my web page and because there
might be quite a few on the page I thought it more efficient to use a font
for this rather than a gif or png.
I investigated what I needed and found exactly what I was looking for in
P gave me a tick and R gave me the box tick in IE and Safari and all
Then I found that they don't come out right in FFox and I then fall into the
abyss that is unicode.
I found that my unicode numbers should be ✓ for a tick and ☑
for a box tick Seems nice and straightforward so I sub the code I'm using
and all is good on FFox, but now I get hollow boxes on the other browsers -
How do I consistently get these chars on all sites - why is this such a pain
when the unicode format seems fine -- aaaaarrrrgggghhh
Thanks for any medication you can give.
