Spice up postings online with stand out symbols found in Unicode or UTF-8 tables

Here are JUST a few to directly copy and paste into text:
  ☛ ☘ ☢ ∞ ♂  ⚐ ⚤ ⚘ ⚙ ♬ ♒ ♫ ☺ ☸ ☤ ☀ ☂ ☁ ☃ ◊ ☆ ☻ ⚛ ♿ ♻ ⚒ ⚓ ⚜ ☄ ☎ ☯ ★ ☥ ☣ ☮ ♀  ☙ ☚ 
(Enlarged {to 48 points} to show texture. When you paste these in they will be in the same color/font/size as the text around them.)

Spice up your online ad postings! Make your bl.og a lot more fun! Get people to ask you "how did you put that cool symbol in our chat?"
UTF-8 or Unicode allows All the known glyphs (well 99% of them in the World) to be inserted in HTML or even some TEXT pages by "copying/pasting" them in, or (maybe) by using the "And" symbol (Ampersand) and some codes!

My favorite ones start in the range of $002600 Hexadecimal or at 9728 in Decimal! These symbols look completely different in different browsers (Chrome or Firefox for example) or with different display fonts .... a hoot!
