The HTML that does not render it like this
<span class="gwt-InlineHTML text stringVal" title="?">?</span>
And also
<span class="gwt-InlineHTML text stringVal" title="?">?</span>

The resulted PDF is rendering a question mark instead.

So we are embedding the unicode {unicode tick here ✔ } directly in the html "unescaped"
The browser accepts that with no problem, we are hoping you would too.

I am sorry if this is confusing but the HTML sign wont render in your HTML editor but it is rendered correctly in the title.

The fonts installed in our system support the Unicode character "CHECK MARK" (U+2713) at the moment. "HEAVY CHECK MARK" (U+2714) is not supported.

This can be easily verified by pasting the following code to
&#x2713 check mark<br>
&#x2714 heavy check mark
