Replacing the remainder of Font Awesome

So the Font Awesome icons for the main plugin were replaced by SVGs during one of the major updates. All of the Font Awesome icons are in a library as svgs. I was going to replace them using the methods found at the bottom of this older thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/request-please-use-custom-icons-font-instead-of-whole-font-awesome-library/

I figured out how to make the SVGs, but I can't get it to work.

The SVG code that I create using Inkscape looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<svg width="2048" height="1792" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 2048 1792" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">

</svg>

 One of the SVGs from that thread looks like this:

.fa-clock {
        background-image: url("data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg' viewBox='0 0 512 512'%3E%3Cpath d='M256 8C119 8 8 119 8 256s111 248 248 248 248-111 248-248S393 8 256 8zm0 448c-110.5 0-200-89.5-200-200S145.5 56 256 56s200 89.5 200 200-89.5 200-200 200zm61.8-104.4l-84.9-61.7c-3.1-2.3-4.9-5.9-4.9-9.7V116c0-6.6 5.4-12 12-12h32c6.6 0 12 5.4 12 12v141.7l66.8 48.6c5.4 3.9 6.5 11.4 2.6 16.8L334.6 349c-3.9 5.3-11.4 6.5-16.8 2.6z'/%3E%3C/svg%3E");

So I make mine look like this:

.fa-paperclip {
        background-image: url("data:image/svg+xml,%3Csvg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg' viewBox='0 0 2048 1792'%3E%3Cpath d='m1024 830.27q1.2872 0 2.2013 0.91405 0.914 0.91405 0.914 2.2013t-0.914 2.2013q-0.9141 0.91405-2.2013 0.91405t-2.2013-0.91405-0.9141-2.2013 0.9141-2.2013 2.2013-0.91405zm7.6153-4.5q1.1466 0 1.9579 0.81129t0.8113 1.9579v9.6922q0 1.1466-0.8113 1.9579t-1.9579 0.81129h-15.231q-1.1466 0-1.9579-0.81129t-0.8113-1.9579v-9.6922q0-1.1466 0.8113-1.9579t1.9579-0.81129h2.423l0.5517-1.4711q0.2056-0.53004 0.7518-0.91405 0.5463-0.38401 1.1196-0.38401h5.5384q0.5733 0 1.1196 0.38401 0.5462 0.38401 0.7518 0.91405l0.5516 1.4711zm-7.6153 12.461q2.0012 0 3.4236-1.4225 1.4225-1.4225 1.4225-3.4236t-1.4225-3.4236q-1.4224-1.4225-3.4236-1.4225t-3.4236 1.4225q-1.4225 1.4225-1.4225 3.4236t1.4225 3.4236q1.4224 1.4225 3.4236 1.4225z'/%3E%3C/svg%3E");

I changed the

.fa-clock

to

.fa-paperclip

And then I cut n pasted the viewbox data in and then everything between d=" and ".
When I add this to my theme's style.css nothing happens. Also tried the customizer and the WPDiscuz's built in CSS box.

Anyone a SVG and CSS expert that can clue me in on what I'm doing wrong?

BTW, the new graphic plots a black camera rather than a gray paperclip. My audience is older and they don't always get the paperclip icon. Replacing that icon is the real reason I started messing with the first place. Not having to load font awesome would be secondary benefit.

@mikequinn,

Currently, there is no option that'll allow you easily replace all the Font-awesome icons with SVG once. However, I've asked the developers to take this into consideration for future updates.
