Quote arrow - how is it done?

I've not snooped around enough but I was wondering how this was done, purely because I could provide an alternative.

Have you considered using the ↑ (up arrow) HTML entity?

It does look like a symbol but perhaps that's because the browser is rendering it as a symbol before outputting it. I figure all this effort is being put in for SEO that we should probably use HTML entities where appropriate (copyright, symbols, arrows, etc).

My bad - they are using it as you suggessted:

HTML:
<a href="[URL='http://xenforo.com/community/view-source:http://xenforo.com/community/goto/post?id=15254#post-15254']goto/post?id=15254#post-15254[/URL]" class="AttributionLink">&uarr;</a>

It doesn't show for me in my Chrome browser :(
Confirmed, Object Inspection in the latest Chrome Dev is actually changing the HTML encoded chars in the source... kind of annoying really because when you view the source you want to actually view the source :(

It's happening on my non-"nightly" Chrome as well.

Confirmed on Chrome OS X (Nightly) - Chrome's OS X Nightly are a bit behind the Winnie-Doze ones though.

Try using Safari...you cant beat its 'Develop' tools in v5!
