Symbols are named graphical or typographic elements. They can be divided into symbol sets, which gives some namespace independence, as well. You can load the symbol definitions from a symb-bla file with:


Given a symbol Snowman defined in a symbolset Weather Symbols, you could typeset the symbol with:

\setupsymbolset [Weather Symbols]
\symbol [Snowman]

Or, alternatively, you don't need to load the entire symbolset:

\symbol[Weather Symbols][Snowman]

You can override the existing symbols used at different levels in itemized lists by redefining the existing symbol numbers, with code like the following:

\definesymbol[1][{\symbol[martinvogel 2][PointingHand]}]
\definesymbol[2][{\symbol[martinvogel 2][CheckedBox]}]
\item item \item item
 \item item \item item
\item item

Which (free) font contains some symbol?
