I’m looking for a HTML or ASCII character which is a triangle pointing up or down so that I can use it as a toggle switch.
I found ↑ (
↑), and ↓ (
↓) – but those have a narrow stem. I’m looking just for the HTML arrow “head”.
Unicode arrows heads:
- ▲ – U+25B2 BLACK UP-POINTING TRIANGLE
- ▼ – U+25BC BLACK DOWN-POINTING TRIANGLE
- ▴ – U+25B4 SMALL BLACK UP-POINTING TRIANGLE
- ▾ – U+25BE SMALL BLACK DOWN-POINTING TRIANGLE
For ▲ and ▼ use
▼ respectively if you cannot include Unicode characters directly (use UTF-8!).
Note that the font support for the smaller versions is not as good. Better to use the large versions in smaller font.
More Unicode arrows are at:
Lastly, these arrows are not ASCII, including ↑ and ↓: they are Unicode.
