    Fooling around with some generated content and had a q?

    how would I get the copyright logo to render within generated content??

    .example::after { content: ‘& copy; my stuff ‘; } seems to generate:

    & copy; my stuff

    How should I got about placing it ?? the solution is prob in front of me…

    Thx gents.

    … AND I may have answered my own q?

    as per a blog post I just came across:

    Turns out you have to put in an escaped reference to the hexadecimal Unicode character value.

    #metaInfo::before {
    content: “\21D3”; /Hexadecimal for Unicode down arrow (⇓)/
    display: inline;

    ** update **

    further testing made the above solution produce me odd results (damn you internet). I ended up using \ 00 + hex value of character ( that you can find on any ascii table). So I ended up using \ 00A9 and it worked like a charm .

    Sorry for the troubles and waste of cloud space!! ;)
