Hi,

I've searched the list archive for this and couldn't find anything, but
apologies if it has already been dealt with...

The CSS3 lists module includes a <glyph> value for the 'list-style-type'
property [0].

<glyph> defines 7 glyph styles, including "check". It strikes me that
another "cross" glyph would be a natural companion to check, e.g. both might
be used in lists discussing the pros and cons of something.

If I've understood the Unicode properly [1], Unicode hex 2717 (BALLOT X)
might be a suitable example character.

Cheers,
