I have added a "boxed x" and "CHECK MARK" to my document, but they do not get exported to pdf output. They are in the .tex file, and do go through to the HTML.  So far I'm using these

 #+LaTeX_HEADER: \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
 #+LaTeX_HEADER: \usepackage{libertine}
 #+LaTeX_HEADER: \usepackage[margin=0.80in]{geometry}
 #+LaTeX_HEADER: \usepackage{setspace}
 #+LaTeX_HEADER: \usepackage{enumitem}
 #+LaTeX_HEADER: \usepackage{endnotes}

(Bonus points for UTF8 code for the opposite of "CHECK MARK"?)

You need a package like wasysym that defines these symbols. Check the web for David Carlisle, Scott Pakin, and Alexander Holt's "The Great, Big List of LaTeX Symbols" for more information.

All the best,
I settled for \ding{54}, but of course that doesn't work in the HTML export.  I keep bumping in to this works-here-not-there in export. Quite disappointing.
