How to create X close button by using CSS

As a pure CSS solution for the close or ‘times’ symbol, you can use the ISO code with the content property. I often use this for :after or :before pseudo selectors.

The content code is \00d7.


display: inline-block;
content: “\00d7”; /* This will render the ‘X’ */

You can then style and position the pseudo selector in any way you want.

Hope this helps someone :).
