# Displaying unicode symbols in HTML

Hi there,

I want to simply display the tick (?) and cross (?) symbols in a HTML page but it shows up as either a box or goop âœ” - obviously something to do with the encoding.

How to set it in the web screen?

thank you

Hi Box,

If it shows up as a box, that means that the font you're using doesn't support that symbol. If they're appearing as a sequence of strange characters, your page encoding is wrong, but afaik UTF-8 is the default character encoding nowadays, so that really shouldn't happen.

Hi box. Why don't you use an "Icon" widget? They have the tick and cross and they always work (except in mail screens).

Cheers.

EDIT: By the way, they are a font, not reaaly an icon.
