Game of Symbols Anyone? ♥♠♦♣

By Patricia L Johnson

Have you ever viewed a website or e-mail that contained symbols or tiny images and you wondered just how they got there?

It’s really very simple and we’ll use the four card suits as examples:

The heart is made by holding down the “Alt” key and pressing the number 3 on the numeric keypad

The spade is made by holding down the “Alt” key and pressing the number 6 on the numeric keypad

The diamond is made by holding down the “Alt” key and pressing the number 4 on the numeric keypad

The club is made by holding down the “Alt” key and pressing the number 5 on the numeric keypad

Your image is going to be very small so what you have to do to enlarge is highlight the image, by clicking on it, and then increase the font size until you’re satisfied.

Your image is going to be black so in order to change the color you have to highlight the image, by clicking on it, and then change the font color to whatever color you choose.

Each time you hit the ‘Alt’ key and a key on the numeric keypad you are going to get a different symbol as follows from 1-9, using different fonts will also change the image slightly, the first group was made using the Batang font and the second group was made using the Calibri (Body) font.
