So I also agree with Eric, that Firefox may be behaving correctly, but not how we want, and not how is best for users (in this case). #13 Comment Thu 22 Accessibility goes out the window. I'd love to be able to use it in my apps. Log in!
Now, does anyone want these to become wide spread on the web? additionaly, the very few fonts that do have those astral characters lack huge parts of the (16bit) bmp characters (for reasons of file size). Reload to refresh your session. For instance, the triangular flag, which is mapped to P = 0x50 in legacy encoding, can be accessed via U+F050 = =  (HTML) = \F050 (CSS). http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7862569/wingdings-font-family-does-not-seem-to-work-on-firefox-and-opera
For Macintosh Roman mapping, Wingdings has no F0 page offset (i.e., the offset is zero). I suspect that what’s actually happening is that, if some Unicode handler (e.g., the Uniscribe Karl mentions) receives data read from the font, it detects it in the 0xF0 region, as So no way to get these icons to work there jakepetroules commented Jun 6, 2012 Ah. Why can't you fix this?
It's as if FF3 is somehow figuring out which fonts contain "approved" representations of the described characters. How does one specify (pick) a glyph in a particular such non-UC symbol font to display? Numeric character references are code positions in the Universal Character Set regardless of the encoding. Wingdings Web Font Obviously, then, if what you and the sources in your links are saying about Windows symbol fonts' glyph set being re-mapped to the Unicode private use area in the F0 block
Instead it falls back to Times (default font) and renders that font's version of the exclamation point. Can we blame Microsoft? :-) Well… Webdings is Microsoft's new TrueType symbol font for the Web. See the close-box example in http://www.bachware.com/books/computer%20utilization/Ch.%201/case.htm. have a peek at this web-site How does Firefox know that the Death Star character is not the same glyph as y? (Surely Firefox is not opening the font and using character recognition to determine that it
It is called a Zwiebelfisch. #6 Comment Thu 22 May 2008 1120 Devon wrote in to say... Font-family Webdings Not Working As Ian says, this is a regression. If a font-family: stylespec specifies a non- (pre-)Unicode, font face such as Wingdings present on a very prevalent platform, Firefox should suspend attempting to use Unicode character-encoding processing (mapping), and revert That permits code also to work with MSIE without obnoxious workarounds.
Entering IPA in online forms and webmail with Opera This is more difficult, but if you need only really basic IPA characters you may luck out and get it to also, a LOT of chinese fonts only have the most frequent characters as glyphs, for the sheer number of them (almost 21 thousand chinese characters in the bmp alone), so failure Wingdings Css If you managed to follow those instructions you will get a window that looks like this: (Side note: The above screenshot is from Opera 9.5 on a Linux computer Chrome Wingdings If a font coded for by a stylespec using font-family: has no Unicode support, and code (HTML|CSS2)specifies the glyphnum; syntax to explicitly pick a glyph from it, FF IMHO should revert
wingdings seems to validate OK using the w3c css validator. To get to the spot to specify the text font, go back to Tools (or the Opera menu on a Mac), click on Preferences again (see first screenshot above), and then OK, we assume now that you have figured out that you need to use Alt+
We used to. Google has publised a list of 180 fonts (which is constantly growing) which can now be used for dynamic (editable) website content. I googled it but did not find any better solution. Using a simple fall-back mechanism to do so is the way to go.
Perhaps this doesn't work in other software because the other cmap is used, or perhaps because other software or platform libraries are performing some transformation of the code as hinted at Webdings Character Codes first line in Chapter 1 of the Unicode standard). If any of them are missing, empty boxes, or otherwise trashed, then you need to fix your Opera for viewing IPA on web pages (see below).
Comic Sans MS works in bold but not in italic. this would be important for chinese character variant selection (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_unification#Examples_of_some_non-unified_Han_ideographs), but even then it requires an informed user intervention (to be sure, the unicode consortium did the wrong thing here Providing inconsistent support depending on if you're using CSS or if you're using deprecated HTML tags doesn't make sense. How To Use Webdings Although, the fact that a font can sport two different mapping tables, such that they can be inconsistent with each other, both of which are used, but each in different contexts,
I'm not sure about other browsers, but it does work in Firefox 12. Another fine example of propriety standards which destroys interoperability and accessibility. @Eric May I suggest using an image with alt text for your ear-Death Star-spider combo. So, with that in mind, Firefox 3 should show that glyph when the font is Webdings. Characters from outside the font are misrendered using glyphs from that font.
