symbols in prize text
« on: February 19, 2008, 09:50:17 PM »
I am looking to put the male symbol (circle/arrow) and female symbol (circle/dagger) into the prize display line

as in 1st male out and 1st female out.

Anyway to do this?  It doesn't seem to take html code in those lines (to insert symbol codes).

You're right, prize names won't take HTML.  More specifically, they will encode the name so you can't put things like

But you can do what I just did to get it to show up here: in your browser, load a page with the symbols on them (here's a page I found with a quick Google search: http://www.danshort.com/HTMLentities/index.php?w=femal), and copy and paste the symbols into the prize names.
