There are some Unicode characters that some browsers just decide they are going to turn into emojis for you. I couldn’t tell you why exactly, but here’s what I see:
Chrome on the left. Safari in the simulator on top and to the right.
Those text Unicode characters (▶, ↩, and, ❤) show up as text in Chrome, then iOS Safari turns them into emojis. Notice how when they are text, I have the ability to change their color, but not when they are turned to emoji.
This came up for me because I was helping someone with their website and they didn’t like the “red diamonds” that were showing up. I didn’t seen them as red until I looked on my phone.
Worked on a little site refresh for someone, and they didn’t like how the diamond characters they use on many pages are RED. I’m like… red? They should be just normal text-color characters. But no, iOS Safari turns them into red emoji things. Or is something else happening? pic.twitter.com/Z0MJWgUHzv
