A font "icon?"

Wingdings

Why bother?

  • Easy to Style (size, color, flip, shadow, rollover effects)
  • Born for retina
  • Replace CSS Sprites

Use 'em the easy way!

  1. Include the font in your site
  2. Call the icon you want with the span html tag
    <span class="genericon genericon-aside"></span>
    <i class="fa fa-beer"></i>
    
  3. Drink a beer

Use 'em all fancy!

div.sharedaddy .sd-content li a::before {
    font-family: 'Genericons';
	font-size: 16px;
	color: #fff;
}

div.sharedaddy a.sd-button>span {
    display: none;
}

div.sharedaddy .sd-content li.share-twitter a::before {
    content: '\f202';
    color: #4099FF;
}
					

See Justin Tadlock's Social Nav Menu Examples for even more!

Where can we find font icons?

Everything is awesome!

Well ... actually ...
