How do I return a tick character

I need to show a tick char on an aspx form

I cannot see any unicode representation for this. short of using a graphic,
is there a better way?

I can't find a tick character either - I suspect graphics are your only
way (or using radio buttons, or an X).

Insert a label control and set its font to "Wingdings"
Set the Text property as ü
This will display the Tick mark and this font is supported by most browsers
and OSs

Interesting but I just tried to do this using VS2005 and couldn't even
select Windings for the font nor could I copy a value from the Character Map
and paste as a value for the label's property.

Using Wingdings in a web page would be a bad move anyway, IMO - it's
pretty Windows specific, I think.
