We need to display a tick symbol (✓ or ✔) within an internal web app and would ideally like to avoid using an image.
Has to work starting with IE 6.0.2900 on a XP box, ideally we need it be cross-browser (IE + recent versions of FF).
The following displays boxes although sets browser encoding to UTF-8 (META works nicely and not the issue). The default font is Times New Roman (might be an issue, but trying Lucida Sans Unicode doesn't help and I don't have neither Arial Unicode MS, nor Lucida Grande installed).
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
Any help appreciated.
The following works under IE 6.0 and IE 7:
<span style="font-family: wingdings; font-size: 200%;">ü</span>
I would appreciate if someone could check under FF on Windows. I am pretty sure it won't work on a non Windows box.
