Insert symbols

Microsoft Expression Web provides the Symbol dialog box for adding symbols (copyright symbol, degree symbol, etc.) to a web page and setting the symbol's font. You can also use the Windows Character Map tool or its associated keyboard shortcuts to add a symbol to a page in Expression Web.

  2. On the Insert menu, click Symbol.

  3. In the Symbol dialog box, under the Font and Subset boxes or under Recently used symbols, click the symbol or special character you want to insert. To go to a particular subset in the list of symbols, in the Subset box, click the arrow and select a subset.

  4. To select the font that the symbol uses in your web page, in the Font box, click the arrow, and select a font.

  5. Click Insert.

  6. Click Close.
