Suit Symbols in Posts

Hey Joe, How'd you get suit symbols in your posts? Just cutting and pasting from somewhere else? I guess so, because I just did from yours.

Well, if anyone wants a quick C&P source, here you go:

Not exactly easy to remember but the HTML code to do the four suits is the following:
Ampersand then pound-sign
followed by
9827 (Clubs)
9830 (Diamonds)
9829 (Hearts)
9824 (Spades)
then semi-colon

An anal-retentive might notice the fact that they not only not four consecutive numbers but they are not in numerical order by rank of suit.

You said anal.

Sushi Cowboy said...

You said it too!

HTML actually has keywords for the four suits. So all you need to do is enter
♥ = ♥
♣ = ♣
♦ = ♦
♠ = ♠

I wonder why they aren't colored red for d and h?

Sushi Cowboy said...

Well the non-numeric method works too. Good tip Joe!
