I have a vexing problem, and I am sorry I cannot easily provide a reprex of the issue. I have created a quarto website for my course. In that project I have created a table with some columns that have fontawesome icons that will link to either pages within the website or external links. Basically, something like this
tibble( words = c("a", "b", "c"), fa = "['<i class='fa-solid fa-video'></i>'](./path/to_doc.qmd)") %>% gt() %>% fmt_markdown(columns = c(fa)) %>% cols_label( words = md("<i class='far fa-calendar'></i>") )
But it will not render with the fontawesome icons. It worked with Rmarkdown in years past. Also, it seems I was able to render it at one time, but that behavior stopped. So I do think something is wrong with the code necessarily, but with how my project is set up in some way (organized, defaults, something).
