Ie4+ supports font-face, but IE7 and below doesn't support the pseudo elements :before and :after. Because Font Awesome uses :before to insert the unicode characters IE7 and below aren't supported.

I think it would be nice if that's made clearer on

be awesome if there was a jquery work around. If the css was specified more like :

.icon-glass:before, .icon-glass .before {
  content: "\f000";

then you could do something like

$('i[class^=icon-]).each(function() {
  $(this).before("<span>", { 'class': 'before', html: '' } )

+1, the documentation is mis-leading.

Good call. I'll figure out a fix for this to make documentation clearer, and to add IE7 support. Thanks for the feedback.
