Re: Quick survey of Apple symbol fonts (in context of the Wingding/Webding proposal)

I have web pages with lists of Unicode equivalents for Wingdings and Wingdings 2
characters, updated for Unicode 6.  These equivalents were chosen by me, and
they are not in any way official Unicode mappings.

I do not have pages for Wingdings 3 or Webdings because I could find only a few
Unicode equivalents.
