    Combine A font awesome icon with other font awesome icons

    In font awesome icons,using stacking we can combine multiple icons and display it as one icon.

    To do that use the fa-stack class on the parent, the fa-stack-1x for the regularly sized icon, and fa-stack-2x for the larger icon.

    And use class fa-inverse for an alternative icon color.

    In the below example, I am displaying A font awesome icon on top of icons like fa-square,fa-circle and fa-ban.

    And used fa-inverse in the second example to invert the color of the icon.

    <div>
        <span class='fa-stack fa-lg'>
            <i class='far fa-square fa-stack-2x'></i>
            <i class='fas fa-a fa-stack-1x'></i>
        </span>
          A on fa-square<br>
        <span class='fa-stack fa-lg'>
            <i class='fas fa-circle fa-stack-2x'></i>
            <i class='fas fa-a fa-stack-1x fa-inverse'></i>
        </span>
          A on fa-circle<br>
