Unicode Yes or No


I've recently been looking for a graphical way to provide an easy at a glance method for indicating yes or no in a Markdown file. As in, is this feature supported/implemented, yes or no. One option is to
reference an actual image file, but that was heavier than what I was wanted to do.

That brought me to Unicode options. I narrowed it down to these two.

Yes ✅

This is the White Heavy Check Mark, also known as U+2705. The HTML entity is: ✅.

No ⛔

For this I went with the No Entry, also known as U+26D4. The HTML entity is ⛔.

I'm using the HTML entities for both of these, and so far I'm happy with the results.
