[texhax] Fumbling with fonts.

For reasons best known to myself ( :-) )I want to produce a "solid"
\heartsuit symbol, rather than just the outline, which is what \heartsuit
gives you.

After scrounging around I found that one way is to load the arev
package and use the \varheart symbol which that package makes

Unfortunately invoking


has the effect of changing all of the fonts in my document, which I
don't want.  How can I "shut this off"?  I.e. I just want to have the
\varheart symbol available and leave everything else alone.

Can anyone tell me how to effect this?  (And please keep explanations
elementary.  I am a bear of very little brain, especially when it comes
to fonts.)

Thanks for any insight.

P. S. The document in question is of the *powerdot* documentclass.
This may (or may not I guess) complicate the issue.
