You can place Font Awesome icons just about anywhere using the CSS Prefix
fa and the icon's
name. Font Awesome is designed to be used with inline elements (we like the
<i> tag for
brevity, but using a
<span> is more semantically correct).
<i class="fa fa-camera-retro"></i> fa-camera-retro
- If you change the font-size of the icon's container, the icon gets bigger. Same things goes for color, drop shadow, and anything else that gets inherited using CSS.
