Arrow Symbols on Your Web Page

Add Arrow Symbols to Your Web Page

Difficulty: Easy

Time Required: 3 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Open the page where you want the arrow symbols in your Web editor.
  2. Position your cursor where you want the arrow symbols.
  3. Make sure you are in code editing mode, not WYSIWYG.Type:
    ← - left arrow
    → - right arrow
    ↑ - up arrow
    ↓ - down arrow
  4. Save your file and open it in a Web browser to test that it worked. You should see: ←, →, ↑, or ↓


    1. Another way you can get the arrow symbols to display is to simply copy and paste them from the screen to your editor. However, not all browsers will display it this way reliably.
    2. WYSIWYG-only editors can copy and paste the arrow symbols into the WYSIWYG mode, and the editor should convert it for you.
    3. You can use CSS text styles to change the color of the arrow symbols and font styles to change the size and weight (boldness) of the arrow symbols.
