Use fontawesome in markup

Hey is there any way to use font awesome in the markup?

I tried using shortcodes, but I’m using rst as markup and shortcodes are not working there.

Can you just embed the html directly in rst? Does something like this work?

I think rst and shortcodes is fixed in Hugo 0.16-DEV.

See my shortcode for font awesome icons at

FYI: the shortcode cannot be seen in your link.
