...doesn't show for me in WinXP.

It did on campus today, which is why I know what it should be. But I just get a box.

Do I need a different font installed or something? Strange.

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

The Star in the title

Hi DJomp,
What browser are you using?
I was trying a few out in XP at work and found that some showed on one browser and not on another.
The star seemed to show up on most both IE and Moz.
Here's a little script to show the different HTML Entities if your intereseted.

<table> 
 <script> 
 for(var x=0; x<5000; x++){ 
 var y=parseInt(5000+x); 
 var z=10000+x; 
 document.write("<tr><td>&#"+x+"; </td><td>"+x+"</td><td>&#"+y+"; </td><td>"+y+"</td><td>&#"+z+"; </td><td>"+z+"</td></tr>"); 
 } 
 </script> 
 </table>   
Be warned it generates a long table and may crash some systems. :roll:

IE6, which is why I'm quite suprised!
