    Does anyone know how to use a custom glyph with the “content property”? I think that is what is being achieved at this website:

    Note the “Clean and Simple” heading has a paper airplane icon preceding it.

    I believe the corresponding CSS code is as follows:


    I guess the root of my question is what does “e80e” represent as it is not a standard glyph. Nor does the glyph come with that particular google font (I don’t think).


    E808e is one of the 6400 characters in the Private Use Unicode subset.

    My guess is that someone remapped that character to the paper plane icon using an icon editor of some kind…there are quite a few around.
