Hi Torsten,

Thanks for your answer.

I understand now. Sorry, I thought you had as script for that.
Now...let's say I can live with hardcoding the css class of each icon..say:

html span
      with: [ html span class: 'fa-header' ].

Then...all I would have to do is to update #cssfontawesomeCssContent to the
latest CSS File and I should be ready to go, correct?

Thanks in advance!
