Sorry, you’re right, I’ll try to be more clear.
I asked the question in that other thread because its OP and I seemed to be trying to do the same thing, i.e., add a coloured dot in the caption field of a Photo Album page. When I asked that question, I did not notice the age of the posting.
The currently published page (www.niroimages.ca) uses red, purple and orange circle emojis, #128308, #128995, #128992. These only appear correctly on my newest iMac. On my husband’s one-generation older iMac, the purple and orange emojis do not render properly. Friends who use Chrome report similar behaviour. Our oldest iMac, about 10 years and several OS versions behind, does not even show the red emojis properly. I assumed this is some kind of font availability issue so am abandoning those emojis.
Also, after you suggested the emojis above, I thought my problem WAS solved since it worked fine on my computer (and on my iPad). The problems with purple and orange emojis didn’t appear until later.
I then tried (but have not published) using a different character. In the bullets/stars font of the iMac’s emojis and symbols panel, there is a very large centre dot (the 5th symbol in that font list). I attempted to use this symbol in the thumbnail captions, but used code to change its colour (example, span style=“color:orange” ●/span ). Btw, I left off the angle brackets in the example code to avoid formatting in this forum message.
Using this centre dot seemed to work except that when viewing the thumbnail (in preview mode) in full-size, besides the correctly displayed caption above the full-size jpg, a mis-formed caption also appears to the right and below the image. I show this in the following screen grab
Btw, if I replace the centre dot with a letter, upper case P for example, I see the same behaviour. This happens regardless of which colour, red, purple, orange.
This is where I’m at. I appreciate that without a published page this is not easy to diagnose. I was just hoping to find someone who has attempted to use html color change code in a Photo Album caption and that may have had the same problem.
Btw, in that other old thread, I gave snippets from the Page source from my RW8 preview (with the angle brackets removed).
I apologize for spreading this info in two threads. The venture into that old thread was a mistake. I should have pm’ed the OP.
