    from http://www.maran.com/dictionary/d/dingbat/.
    Special characters like stars, hands, arrows, and geometric shapes you can use to decorate a document. A collection of dingbats is found in a popular font called Wingdings.
    A Google search would tell you more that you might want to know. :)

    BTW, I don't like them in node titles either.

      It took a while before i realised what they are, and how they're used over here. I was afraid for wingdings characters or images, but the single characters are no problem for me.

      Are there rules for dingbats in node titles? (written or implicitly assumed?)
