Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.


Symbolset is a font which maps keyword ligatures into icon glyphs. In other words, you type the word ‘user’ and a user icon is substituted, you type the word ‘cart’ and a shopping cart icon appears, etc. To a search engine, it’s plain text. To a browser, it’s a symbolic glyph, all without using separate images or CSS trickery.
