problems with card suits in sigil

I am converting a novel that mentions card hands into epub and mobi formats and am having problems with Sigil.

I was not sure the best way to accomplish this (i used the symbol font in indesign).

What's interesting is that the card formats display properly in Code view, but nothing at all shows up in Book View.

A poster in the Calibre section suggested I use HTML instead so I search/replaced for
♠
♥
♦
♣

However, once again, while this HTML code shows up in code view (obviously), nothing shows up in Sigil's book view.

Am I missing something?

Weird
3.4 in XP
opened sigil (default document)
switched to CV typed the 4 suites next to the &nbsp; in the only <p> tag. Switched to BV they show, Switched to CV and the entities have been replaced with the symbols. Tidy is ON

EDIT:

Solved it. CSS problem. The odd behavior of it working in code view but not book view threw me off the scent. Removed an errant style and it worked.
