Facebook status updates and profile fields do not accept HTML code, so this method will not create a star symbol on Facebook. You can circumvent this limitation by copying a star symbol from your computer's Character Map and pasting the symbol directly into your Facebook profile or status update. The Character Map offers a number of different star designs from which to choose.
