How do I get a five point solid star using character map ?
I can not retrieve a five point solid star from the " character map ". I have tried all the fonts that have a star ,and, when I paste, I get a different character ,but, no star. I tried the system of getting characters using the " ALT KEY " and number pad on the right side of the keyboard, but, here again, when I type in the code for a solid star ( 9733 in the list I retrieved from the internet ) a different character pops up. I have Vista, and use Firefox. I tried using " IE " but still have the same problem. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you
Hello Cor-el, Thank you for your help. I used some of your information, and, after going to different websites, I found one that had a small app that allows me to insert the star. Best regards,DaveRead this answer in context 👍 0

Do you see the Miscellaneous and Dingbats symbols: ★: ★, ☆: ☆?
Try to install the Symbola font if you notice missing symbols.
