Wingdings character set and equivalent Unicode characters

http://www.alanwood.net/demos/ansi.html

Wingdings font should not be used in Web pages. This page is not a demonstration of how to use Wingdings font; it provides a warning of the problems that it causes, and shows how to use Unicode instead.

Microsoft include an OpenType version of their Wingdings font with Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000. An older TrueType version was supplied with Windows 3.1x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME and Windows NT. A resource-fork TrueType version was supplied with versions of Mac OS 9 that had Internet Explorer pre-installed as the default Web browser.

For Windows, browsers such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Netscape 4 and Safari that are not standards-compliant allow non-Unicode fonts such as Wingdings to be specified in HTML or CSS, to enable additional special characters to be displayed. Specifying Wingdings font is contrary to the published specifications, has never been a documented feature of HTML, is not reliable, and should not be done. Wingdings is not available on all computers, and so the intended characters may not appear on computers running non-Microsoft operating systems such as Mac OS 9, Mac OS X 10 or Linux. The intended characters are also unlikely to appear when using a standards-compliant browser such as Firefox, Netscape 6+, Opera 6+ or SeaMonkey (formerly Mozilla). The same problems are found with the Webdings, Wingdings 2 and Wingdings 3 fonts they should not be used in Web pages.

This page lists (and attempts to display) all of the 224 characters in the Wingdings font. It also lists (and attempts to display) the equivalent Unicode characters, where these exist. Not all Wingdings characters have equivalent Unicode characters, and some of the listed equivalents are not very good matches.

The characters that appear in the Wingdings Character column of the following table are generated by the non-standard technique of specifying the Wingdings font, using <font face="Wingdings">. It is possible that your combination of browser and operating system will show special characters, but browsers that conform to the published standards will demonstrate why Wingdings font should not be used in Web pages.

The characters that appear in the Unicode Character column of the following table are generated from Unicode numeric character references, and so they should appear correctly in any Web browser that supports Unicode and that has suitable fonts available, regardless of the operating system.
