Unicode CSS Classes
CSS class name structure and consistency is really important; some developers camelcase classnames, others use dashes, and others use underscores.

<!-- success message -->
<div class="❤">Your changes have been saved successfully!</div>

border: 1px solid #f00;
border: 1px solid green;
