How can I determine the escape sequence for characters in an icon font?


Tags: css,fonts

Problem :

I am working with a theme which uses a custom built set of icons which are loaded as a font. If I download the font I can load it in my font manager and see all the icons, but how to determine which escape sequence to use in my css to render a particular icon? Is there a utility or some way to translate icons to their relative escape codes?



Solution :

For Windows:

Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Character Map

Select the font, the select the character. The character code will be shown in the status bar at the bottom.
