Is there anyway to make unicode symbols bigger?

What I’m trying to do


I am looking to see if there is a way to use CSS to make a specific unicode symbol, U+27DE, bigger. I have tried using a CSS snippet and defining a font face with the symbol in the unicode range but have had no luck so far.

Anyone have any ideas?


markdown can contain HTML.
You can either style it directly like this

<span style="font-size:2em">⟞</span>

Or you can add a class or ID and define the style in a CSS snippet.

Thank you for your response

I am afraid I was not super clear in my original post, I would like to be able to set the font size for the symbol “globally”, so that everytime I type it, it is enlarged.

Mainly i want to get this symbol:

to be a little bit bigger and match the size of this symbol:

You mentioned defining the style in a CSS snippet, would that be something that could do this?

It is impossible to do that with CSS alone.
You can find out more about how it works by searching for ’CSS+Selector’.
Anyway You need JavaScript (TypeScript).
In other words, you need to find or create a plugin for it.

Alternatively, you can find or modify a font that has the desired size symbol.
