HTML codes

Yeah - I am awake again.

Okay so, I am not the only one that this happens to. the ♥ (♥) code shows up for me as a |-like symbol in bold in Firefox on OSX. Then again, that code is not in my O'Reilly HTML Pocket Reference (not a very new copy but says "Covers HTML 4.0" on the cover) and so it may just be that Firefox is being standards-compliant where other browsers are less so and/or it is an I.E.-only code. I know that canyoncat uses Firefox and they show up as hearts for him but then he is on Windows. Just had a thought - maybe it is an OSX font issue. Then again, it shows as a heart in xjournal preview.

So - anyone know why this code does not show up for me? Not that I am too bothered - merely curious - I tend to assume that a | was intended to be a heart...

ETA: It shows as a heart in Safari (OSX) but as the bold | in Camino, as well.
