.. warning:: ie7 support has been removed

How to use

To use an icon you can add 'fa fa-X' to your tag where X is the icon you want::

<li class="fa fa-glass">item 1</li>
<li class="fa fa-music">item 2</li>
<li class="fa fa-search">item 3</li>

Or just use CSS for your class 'myclass'::

.myclass:before {
content: "\f000";
font-family: FontAwesome;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: normal;
text-decoration: inherit;

Available CSS classes and values for the content attribute can be found in the `Font Awesome cheat sheet <>`_ or in the `source code <>`_ (file: font-awesome.css#L171 at the time of writing).

An example page is avaible in the addon, here is a screenshot:

Replacing Plone's default icons with FontAwesome fonts

There is now a separate Generic Setup profile called ``replace-plone-icons`` which
will replace Plone's default icons (e.g. for content types and actions) with
Font Awesome icons.

IMPORTANT: You still need to install the ``default`` profile as well.
