Strange Shift Symbol
Authored by: googoo on Nov 08, '07 07:58:56AM
I have never seen that shift symbol. There is not an ASCII equivalent to the symbol I see the menus, but it is closest to ⇑, which is decimal 8657 and hex 21D1.

If you're using a Gecko-based browser, the shift symbol won't appear correctly in robg's table. The right code values are present, though.

As an aside, anyone can work around that bug by specifying Osaka as the font when marking up those symbols (and others; using Osaka will also fix the card suit characters) in HTML code. Thankfully, bug is fixed in version 1.9 of Gecko, coming in Firefox 3, Camino 2, SeaMonkey 2....

That was it. I was viewing it in Camino 1.5.2. The shift symbol in the original table looks good in Safari.
