[Bug 244061] New: New UI::Glyph - Ballot

Summary: New UI::Glyph - Ballot
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: unspecified
Platform: All
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Enhancement
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: sh@xxxxxxxxxx

I'd like to add a new UI::Glyph as a counterpart to CheckMark (indicating that
some step has succesfully passed). It would be a little cross mark indicating
failure (U+2718), which is useful e.g. in Internet test to give user feedback
that certain step has failed (related bug #121705). See attached screenshot.

Now the problem arises with ncurses (that use ASCII equivalents of these glyphs
from y2-core). We use [x] as CheckMark, which is confusing, because it looks a
bit like CheckBox (related bug #166237)
Therefore, I've proposed [OK] string for CheckMark and [x] for Ballot

However, I understand the limitations that proposed unicode character might not
be in some fonts used by Qt and in that case, feel free to close as invalid -
it's better to have no character at all than an empty square.

I'll attach screenshots and patches for y2-qt and y2-core shortly
