Hey guys, was just looking at this site here http://dropthebit.com/demos/fancy_input/fancyInput.html
see what appears first on the screen ?
an input box with a fancy "hand" character, if you dig the html source , you will see the following:
Where do i find characters awesome like these ??
✌ Peace, Bro.
It's one of the standard Unicode characters. In this case, U270C or ✌ ✌
See online Unicode character map for the entire glyph set.
See also Unicode character names.
but how would i find ...
Thanks alot !
but how would i find a unicode character if i did't know its name ??
I looked in two areas, symbols and dingbats. I didn't know the name. I thought it was called a peace sign but once I found the glyph, it was a matter of going backward to the name, "victory sign".
Ok peace Bro !!
ok thanks gary !!!
hmmmm ... one more question
come across something interesting today:
template = $('<div><b class="caret">​</b></div>');
What does such a character get used for ?
Space usage …
Is weird and not well supported. I don't know that I've ever used it, but as your reference points out, it can be used for break word control. E.g. "under​standing" will suggest where the word may be broken:
The soft hyphen is a more correct choice, but is very poorly supported.
ok thanks gary
Thanks gary ! .....
