Using the code below, I'm trying to add a css-styled "+" in front of my menu items:
<?php wp_list_pages('title_li=&child_of=989&link_before=<span class="sideplus">+</span>'); ?>
On my page, the plus won't show up. It is visible however in a regular "ul" without the use of the template tag.
Is there a way (other than using a "\" or the ascii-version, which don't work) to show this +? Other characters like a minus or a letter show up just fine.
