Unicode Characters for Task Lists

Back in 1993 I developed the habit of putting boxes by my task list items and then filling the boxes in in various ways as I worked on and eventually completed the tasks. Today, I found the following characters in the Unicode 3.0 standard. These could be used in a software system that implements my task list management technique.

NOTE: These characters may not display correctly for you if your browser is not fully Unicode capable.

Unicode Example Description Meaning
0x25a1
0x2610

0x22a1 box w/dot Considering

box filled Verified
