Two fun little websites that are great resources for unicode left and right arrows:

  1. right-arrow.net
  2. left-arrow.net

Here are the tables (with some extra details filled in):

These are just a small sampling of arrows, however, and there’s so much more when it comes to unicode characters. In a previous post about encodings, HTML Symbols & ASCII Characters I referenced this resource from Toptal (which is still one of the best I’ve found).
