I use Inkscape to mockup a lot, and I'd like to open the font-awesome svg file so that I can have the icons ready to copy/paste into my mockups. However, upon opening this file, it seems to be empty, and none of the other files in the font-awesome font/ directory are readable by Inkscape.

How can I open the SVG file of Font-awesome with Inkscape?

Because there is only a font in it. Open Inkscapes' Font Editor and you will the glyphs.
