<i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-lg"></i> fa-lg
<i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-2x"></i> fa-2x
<i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-3x"></i> fa-3x
<i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-4x"></i> fa-4x
<i class="fa fa-camera-retro fa-5x"></i> fa-5x

fa-lg fa-2x fa-3x fa-4x fa-5x

This example use the fontawesome_markdown extension

i <3 :fa-coffee: and I <3 :fa-beer: and I'll buy wayland ten of both. 

i <3 and I <3 and I'll buy wayland ten of both.

For this example, you must install the fontawesome_markdown extension with pip. Right now version 0.2.5 is the latest but it doesn't work so you have to install the latest version from the github repository. You can do that with the below command

pip install https://github.com/bmcorser/fontawesome-markdown/archive/master.zip

You may need to include --upgrade in the above command if you already have this extension installed.

Then add the below to your mkdocs.yml file.

      - fontawesome_markdown

That's it.
