Up / Down HTML arrow characters (for sorting, etc)

I was searching for the opposite of the caret, or circumflex, character (^) and couldn’t really find one. Typically, in a pinch when I’m mocking, I would just use the caret ^ and a lowercase v – but they don’t look the same.

There doesn’t seem to be a good opposite for the caret character – but I found 2 extremely useful HTML character codes to use instead:

∧ (∧) and ∨ (∨)

There’s also the darker filled in versions as well, but I don’t like them as much as they tend to look a little unnatural:

▲ (▲) and ▼ (▼)
