Since graphical image support in terminal emulators is unreliable, we rely on Unicode for iconography. When applying iconography consider:

  • People use different fonts that will have varying Unicode support
  • Only use iconography to enhance meaning, not to communicate meaning

Note: In Windows, Powershell’s default font (Lucida Console) has poor Unicode support. Microsoft suggests changing it for more Unicode support.
