Telephone/Fax Symbols in Word

Have set up a form in Word 2002 and I want to include a Telephone symbol (Image) instead of the text "Tel:" for example. Similarly for "fax". I have looked in the Wingdings Fonts but the symbols are poor to say the least.

Can anyone recommend another (free) font or direct me to some suitable images?

Thanks in anticipation - I shall be out to lunch shortly but I`ll get back to you soon!

Have you had a look in the clipart images? You may have to have the Word 2002 disk to hand if they are not installed already.

The symbol you are looking for can be found by clicking on 'Insert' on the tool bar, go to Symbol, then on the drop down menu pick Wingdings, the telephone symbol is the 9th block along, click on it then click on 'insert' - that should do the trick.

Octal - Why didn`t I think of that! Thanks I`ll check them out.

webber_man - I`ve just taken mine off.

Yoda Knight - I`ll look there too!

Thanks all. I suspect a font symbol may be easier than trying to insert an image int the document but I`ll give it a go. I`ve laid the form out in tables so inserting the image will immediately throw out the form as the cells resize to the image size. Experimentation coming up.

I was looking for plain black symbols and I found them as images. A little bit of tweaking to reduce the sizes worked OK.

Evening VoG!
