Is ▸ safe to use?

I would like to place a triangle on my webpage using this entity:


Is it safe to use?  Might there be compatibility issues with browsers, operating systems and installed fonts that would prevent ▸ from being correctly rendered?

There is one way you can answer the question yourself for certain -
put up a dummy page with your triangle on it, then use to take screen shots from every different browser and OS so you can see exactly where your problems will be if any.

you can use that with urldecode() function:

echo urldecode('▸');

shobinsunm, you do not understand my question.  This is NOT a PHP question.  I only want to know if the html entity ▸will consistently work across browsers and platforms.

Ok..I understand.

Its works fine under  most of the character encoding scheme for example UTF-8, Windows-1252, ISO-8859-15, ISO-8859-1, ISO-8859-2 etc.\

You can check it via editing the httpd.conf(in my system) or apache.conf

"AddDefaultCharset UTF-8" .  Comment that line and change the coding vis :

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-15">
