Place Font Awesome icons just about anywhere with the <i> tag.

Icon classes are echoed via CSS :before.





To increase icon sizes relative to their container, use the icon-large (33% increase), icon-2x, icon-3x, icon-4x, or icon-5x classes.

<p><i class=" icon-pinterest icon-large"></i> icon-pinterest</p>
<p><i class=" icon-pinterest icon-2x"></i> icon-pinterest</p>
<p><i class=" icon-pinterest icon-3x"></i> icon-pinterest</p>
<p><i class=" icon-pinterest icon-4x"></i> icon-pinterest</p>
If your icons are getting chopped off on top and bottom, make sure you have sufficient line-height.
