    code for check-mark character?

    Hello,

    Is there a code for entering a check-mark as text?

    For example, "& para ;" displays the paragraph ¶ symbol...

    It seems that this should be possible, as the forms checkbox displays a check-mark, but I haven't been able to find a reference that gives a code for this (and cannot copy a check-mark fom a checkbox, either).

    I don't think there is one.

    Try × or •

    Plenty in wing/webdings but not all users have them installed.

    Ok, if that's not possible...

    Is there a way to hide the border around a checkbox, using css?

    I've tried, but so far, only an additional border is added around the box--rather than a border replacement; therefore, I cannot conceal it by setting the color = to the background.

    I also tried hiding the border within both a table cell, and an iframe, but in both instances, I could not shrink the parameters enough to conceal the checkbox border...

    It seems odd that what looks to be a "universal character" (the check-mark) cannot be copied or typed.

    *Thanks for the reply, by the way.

    Try this: & radic; or this: & #8730; or this: & #x221A; (without the & space)

    Yes, those appear on screen; however, they aren't really check-marks...

    Thanks for the information, just the same.

    You can remove the checkbox border using clip on a layer:

    <DIV style="LEFT: -1px; WIDTH: 15px; CLIP: rect(6px 15px 15px 6px); POSITION: absolute; HEIGHT: 15px"><input type="checkbox" value="myval"></div>
    Don't resist to assimilation. Billions of Borgs can't be wrong!

    Internet Explorer

    This locks the check in place, in case anyone needs to know...



    <DIV style="LEFT: -1px; WIDTH: 15px; CLIP: rect(7px 15px 15px 6px); POSITION: absolute; HEIGHT: 15px"><input type="checkbox" checked value="myval" onFocus='this.blur();' onClick='this.checked=true;'></div>
