Wingdings 2 character set and equivalent Unicode characters

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

Wingdings 2 font should not be used in Web pages. This page is not a demonstration of how to use Wingdings 2 font; it provides a warning of the problems that it causes, and shows how to use Unicode instead.

Microsoft do not supply Wingdings 2 with Windows; it has been included with versions of Office starting with Office 97 and with some versions of Works. It was originally a TrueType font, but recent versions are OpenType.

For Windows, browsers such as Internet Explorer and Netscape 4 that are not standards-compliant allow non-Unicode fonts such as Wingdings 2 to be specified in HTML or CSS, to enable additional special characters to be displayed. Specifying Wingdings 2 font is contrary to the published specifications, has never been a documented feature of HTML, is not reliable, and should not be done. Wingdings 2 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, Google Chrome, Netscape 6+, Opera 6+, Safari 3+ or SeaMonkey (formerly Mozilla). The same problems are found with the Webdings, Wingdings and Wingdings 3 fonts they should not be used in Web pages.

This page lists (and attempts to display) all of the 216 characters in the Wingdings 2 font. It also lists (and attempts to display) the equivalent Unicode characters, where these exist. Not all Wingdings 2 characters have equivalent Unicode characters, and some of the listed equivalents are not very good matches.

The characters that appear in the Wingdings 2 Character column of the following table are generated by the non-standard technique of specifying the Wingdings 2 font, using <font face="Wingdings 2">. 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 2 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.
