If you have access to windows (xp/vista) fonts, the
symbol can be found in the webdings font
(distributed in windows xp/vista)
(you can display it in html with the code ⚛)
If you have a way of installing the true type font
to your system (Webding-Regular), then the next step
would be to download the texmf support files from
and you should be able to get your symbol as a font.
There's other possibility. I kinda remember there was
a tool called ttf2mf (works on ms-windows only) that
can output from a true type font the necessary metafont
sources. Then all you have to do is place the mf files
somewhere in your texmf tree (and update the database)
