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 http://www.ascii-code.com/):

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.


Thanks!

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.
