    How to use "font awesome"

    Hi, I would like to use "font awesome" but that is not available in Google fonts. Is there another way of doing it? Thank you.

    Hi there,

    The easiest way would be to embed your form with source code and include the html below in the head of your page. 

    <link target="_blank" href="//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.css" rel="stylesheet">

    This way, you can add icons whereever you please on your form since we don't allow the usage of html tags in form labels or etc. on Jotform.com for security reasons.

    How to get the source code

    Update: It turns out that this is the only way. I tried it with Inject CSS by modifying css I got from the cdn but our inject CSS field strips the "\" character when saving and prevents fontawesome from working. This is done because of security reasons.
