I followed what (vague) instructions I could find on the Font Awesome site, on forums and techwrl archives, etc, but, as a newcomer to both Flare and HTML5, I'm stumped.

Here's what I did:

- Copied the entire downloaded font-awesome folder into my Flare project into a Font folder that I created under Resources in the Content Explorer.

- In the topic master page .flmsp file, I added this to the <head> section:

<link href="../../font-awesome-4.6.3/css/font-awesome.min.css" type="text/css" />

I should then have been able to add a font awesome icon to a line of text using:

<p>adding a font awesome icon: <i class="fa fa-camera-retro"></i> fa-camera-retro"</p>

Didn`t work.

I then tried linking to the font awesome .min.css file (in the Projects tab, selected New > Add Stylesheet; In the Add File dialog, I selected New from existing and navigated to the font awesome.min.css file. Opened the MainStyles.css and selected Options > Stylesheet Links. Moved the font-awesome.min.css into the right pane and clicked ok.

Still didn't work.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
