How can I make ↓ look like an arrow instead of a line with a dot on top?


I use this for an arrow on my site.

<font color="#009911" style="font-size: 13pt; text-decoration: none; font-weight: 900;">&uarr;</font></a><a href="/cms1/admin/manage_modules.php?ModuleID=4&ModuleOrder=5&MoveDown=True&1092174559"><font color="#009911" style="font-size: 13pt; text-decoration: none; font-weight: bold;">&darr;</font>

How can I get it to look more like an arrow and less like a line with a dot on top?

Thanks!

Hi

It looks fine in my IE6, but the down arrow looks weird in Firefox from what I can tell. I guess you can use images or try other fonts?

Have you specified a character encoding for your page, such as one of
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-TR9573" />
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" />
That last might not work so well for Mac and Unix/Linux clients.  :-)

&darr; is supposed to be equivalent to the numeric reference of
    &#8595;
so you could also try that instead of &darr; and see what happens.

It depends on the font. This isn't an image, it's a character. It's like to ask how to make "G" look more like a circle. And I recommend you to not use a character like that. You better make a little image.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is there a way that I could make it fatter and shorter with CSS ?

No, sorry, there is no way to give the width of text. And if someone invented it, I would beat him up. However, you make the text bold, "font-weight: bold".
