IM NOT BEING FUNNY RIGHT BUT ARE YOU ACTUALLY TRYING TO SAY THAT A BLACK SMILEY IS UNHAPPY!?
JUST BECAUSE IT'S BLACK?
IM GOIN TO MAKE A FORMAL COMPLAINT AND I HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD LAWYER!
racist b*s*a*d!

Thanks for your comment.
We have modified the error in our content which was not racially motivated.

It isn't illegal, and it was a mistake. You're a wimpy loser that needs to find something to yell about

...or a troll

hah! agreed ☺☻☺☻☺☻☺☻

Can you please write more blog entries on this subject, its a request, because after reading your blog I am highly interested in learning more.

Very interesting info Thank you very much keep it up..this is my websitefree itunes download

Thanks for the codes, i will use these codes to chat with some friends on Facebook

Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.

Please tell me that you are kidding. The color black does not refer to African Americans. Black is a traditional color associated to felling sad. Are you now going to say that it is racist that the heart is black because it could offend white people?

Where I come from, the colour with all those jobs is Blue, which only offends blue people like Smurfs and Scotts.

Nice effort, very informative, this will help me to complete my task.

well you are rite aleat they have a black and white one

I thought it was a happy face...

Your article is one of the most classical style, when I read once, I have been deeply in love with them, you look forward to more perfect work.

Hello i am Dr. Geener and i am the one who has been creating all of these symbols. The black Smile has nothing to do with aferican americans. It should not make you- or for this matter ANYBODY- feel bad.
I am so sorry for this inconvenience and if you have any more thoughts please reply to this and i will happily get back to you as soon a possible!

thoughtfuly,
Mr. Geener

Thank you! Your work is so fun. As far as suggestions, Alt15 looks like an astrological Sun Sign. Perhaps you could incorporate the other signs, as well. Thanks again for all your hard work! Excellent.

is there a symbol for a broken heart, Doc?

I am sincerely looking for a broken heart. Often on FB you can love a comment, but many times you want to thumbs down, or just plain say this broke your heart.

:)

Wow..... what a great work you have done.
Very vice bro. Thank you.

Great post. I just came across your website and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading through your blog posts. Any ways I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon

Thank you for this great list! didn't know this at all:O
Website

This is a nice little chart.

My Suggestions:

Alt 15 -- Sun Symbol
127 -- Home Plate Symbol
Alt 18 -- Vertical Arrow(s)
Alt 29 -- Horizontal Arrow(s)

Thanks a lot for sharing this amazing knowledge with us. This site is fantastic. I always find great knowledge from it.

Suggestions :
Alt 15 : sun
Alt 127 : home (from fault trees)
Alt 18 : UpDown Arrow (Latex like)
Alt 29 : LeftRight Arrow (Latex like again)

These are the missing descriptions for the listed symbols:

▲ — Black Up-Pointing Triangle
▼ — Black Down-Pointing Triangle
↨ — Up Down Arrow With Base (Alt 23)
⌂ — House (Alt 127)
☼ — White Sun With Rays
↕ — Up Down Arrow
↔ — Left Right Arrow

WOOT the one that looks like this→( ☼ ) IS A SUN WOOT

awsome!
dese really work ♥

what about the percent sign?

The most official purposes, though currency signs may be in common use in many other contexts. Few currencies in the world have no short hand symbol at all.Thanks for sharing informative post.

I feel that smiles and bullets are less used for official purpose. Thanks for sharing such a useful information.

There is already a % sign on your keyboard. Look at the numeral '5' in the top line.

shift+5= %

Alt + 37

There is an alt code for every letter/punctuation... With over 10,000 combinations this isn't surprising ☺

is there a star alt code?

yeah its in between alt 9000 or sumin but there is

its alt 9002

alt + 9733 = solid star
alt + 9734 = outline star

what is alt? and where do i find this key?

ITS NEXT TO THE SPACE BAR! IT SAYS Alt ON IT! HOPE THIS HELPED! P.S. IT SHOULD BE UNDER THE LETTER X.

it is found next to or near the "ctrl" button, or look for the key that says "alt" and there you go, have a nice day~!

I knew where the alt key was but i did not know how to use it. I sure hope you finally found it and you are using it now. The post was helpful.

SYMBOL NAME CODE NUMBER
¼ Fraction 1/4 0188
½ Fraction 1/2 0189
¾ Fraction 3/4 0190

♫♪

Percent sign is Shift+5

how do make a little 2?

Alt+253 = ² or Alt+1021 = ²
In some Windows applications only one or the other will work so it's good to know both. Hope this ² was the "little 2" you were referring to.

What about the Euro sign...

OMG..I Thank Dis Websitee♥

- Ye are all cool . ♥ ;)

alt145=æ
