Need font that renders "bullet"

Apr 02, 2013 at 19:13

In need of a font that renders a "bullet" character BOTH in TrueType (or other) form AND when converted to ASCII.

Ideally we need the character to generate this symbol in ASCII (as shown in the chart at

DEC OCT HEX BIN Symbol HTML Number HTML Name Description
149 225 95 10010101 • • Bullet

As an example, we use the ZapfDingbats character represented by lower-case n to serve as the bullet in Word documents. However, when the documents are converted to webpage, the bullets simply appear as lower-case n. What font does both -- create a bullet for .doc and a bullet for .txt.

Bookman Old Style - depress the Alt key, type 7, (or 249, or 250), from the number pad, release Alt.

Just one other question. I suppose there are many answers. How do *you* say "ASCII" ?

I say it... "ascii".

@ cbr4

That is because only IE understands MS Word's miraculous html coding. Open the htm(l) file with IE and you will see the bullets. But only on a system where Zapf Dingbats is installed.
