typicons – Font containing a set of web-related icons
This package grants access to 336 web-related icons provided by the included “Typicons” free font, designed by Stephen Hutchings and released under the SIL Open Font License. See http://www.typicons.com for more details about the font itself.
This package requires the fontspec package and either the Xe(La)TeX or Lua(La)TeX engine to load the included ttf font.
Once the package is loaded, icons can be accessed through the general \ticon command, which takes as argument the name of the desired icon, or through direct commands specific to each icon. The full list of icon designs, names and direct commands is showcased in the manual.
