That's a godd idea; although why everybody seems to think I want the 
pile of poo, when
I want 1F600 (the rictus smiley face) I just don't know.

The font is "sans-serif".

Now, in my font list over in Livecode I could only find a font listed as 
"Sans", which delivered a
blocked-in oblong rather than the face.

This would suggest that Thunderbird is using its own, built-in font.
