My website: Currently boring.

   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

http://www.mclean.net.nz/ucf/ is my favorite place to find characters. For basic web design tutorials, I really like W3Schools.

IDK if i made this clear, but this page is not a character chart. It is a free webfont that I find very useful to use instead of SVG's. If you search css-tricks, you can find more info on this. ;)

you're welcome! It's amazing how helpful they can be.

Word of caution: use the ":before" pseudo-class instead of just putting symbols directly into the page. This will keep screen readers from reading it and also disallow highlighting for most browsers ;)

Yeah, w3schools is definitely the place for newbs to start and is great for reference.

Here's a cool css-tricks article: http://css-tricks.com/adobe-like-arrow-headers/
