Problems with unicode icons

  • # February 5, 2013 at 4:54 am

    Recently I was trying to make traingles with shadows in css. There is a [css-tricks article](http://css-tricks.com/triangle-with-shadow/) on it that uses unicode icons for the triangle. It says that there might be problem with unicode icons in some browsers. I would like to what would be those problems

    This is primarily a font problem.

    If the fonts listed in your CSS do not cover some character, then different browsers will use fallback fonts differently. The cure is to try and find a list of fonts that probably covers all the characters you use. The difficulty of doing this greatly depends on the characters you use.
