Web development is a sad joke. I should implement more logos and icons in pure #CSS, just to show what's possible.
@rysiek it doesn't look right in either my Firefox or my Chromium - and it fails in different ways on each :-(
i had no idea CSS parsing was this messy and inconsistent; i can see it being different per browser, but per install...? madness!
(makes me want to go back to the much simpler days of using tables for layout... at least they worked consistently on everything)
@rysiek no, please don’t use forkawesome.
@rysiek (unless you’re just cloning the repo to get at the.svg icons inside. but if you just need a lobrary of free to use svg icons there are many other options)
@TransGal4872 @rysiek that’s pretty much already how emoji unicode already works, with the exception that there’s two control codes, one to switch a text character to emoji presentation, and one to do the opposite, and a database of default presentations.
the font formats themselves are just ordinary open type things with a set of svg or png files stitched to the end.
@TransGal4872 @rysiek that is an argument that has already been had and lost. the colour emoji are expected to be colour by default by japanese phone users. the characters in the bmp that *were* monochrome by default but changed to colour, you may find, actually have a colour presentation character tacked on by the emoji keyboard
emoji fonts *are* seperate from the “normal” text fonts, and the only ones that display as colour by default are the ones that would be more astonishibg as monochrome by default
@rysiek Doing this in a font means that it can be used in non-web documents, too.
@rysiek That actually won't work for me either because I'm on a power-trip right now where my browser ignores font suggestions from websites
@rysiek Yeah, initially it looked "right", but then I realized it wasn't.
And this is a very distinct font. I bet you'd get decent results with many common fonts.
