HTMLtext in Label?

Hi Scott

This works for me in LiveCode 7 dp3:

	set the Label of Button "Button" to numToCodepoint(0x1D122)  ;; bass clef

Also pasting the correct character into the label field in the property inspector works under OS X (and may work on other systems too.)

I suspect the problem that you are encountering stems from U+0349 being a combining mark rather than a character in it's own right. From OS X character viewer:

	͉
COMBINING LEFT ANGLE BELOW
Unicode: U+0349, UTF-8: CD 89

This will display the left angle in the label of a button:

	set  the Label of Button "Button" to " " & numToCodepoint(0x0349)

Hope this helps.

Peter
