    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?

    two seconds

    [edit] looks like it is a symbol

    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).

    Ooh, where'd you find that? My browser renders as symbols and not HTML entities.

    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 :(

    ahhh, Chromes Inspect Element is nice and live. I like it that way. Just ctrl+u to view the actual 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!
