So emoticons are rendered as a font character, and emoji are unicode references that are rendered by the OS?
I didn’t know that. No pooh, nails, or ghost, but the simplicity of using a font has advantages.
Incidentally, I stumbled across Danny Goodman’s book yesterday, and had a little smiling weep when I saw where my then toddler son scribbled in it with my highlighter pen when I had nipped to the loo. He is now a video editor who no longer scribbles in my books. I don’t miss the little scribbles, I do miss the little scribbler.
