Side Bar WTF

Why the hell is this (and others like it) defined as a character in a language?
I guess we should be glad @ben_lubar isn't on the Unicode committee or we'd have Dwarf Fortress glyphs defined as Unicode scalars...

Awesome, Firefox and IE support it, Chrome does not. (try visiting me in Firefox or IE)
SOMEONE POST AN URGENT BUG ON CHROME TRACKER

Actually, they already are!

How do you know Dwarf Fortress glyphs aren't defined as Unicode scalars already?

God Damn It Chrome, why do you have to strip all the cool stuff from "Chrome For Windows the dumbed down edition"

It's even worse: Chrome on Linux does the same thing for me here. But... Chrome OS is Linux.

I think it's a fonts thing.

Good to know.

Because unicode is a 💩. Especially since Japanese telcos came with the emoji thing.

Hey, if they already have so many symbols, why not expand the scope of Unicode? Let's add some more control characters, like ANSI has. Bold text, italics, larger text, smaller text...
But that would make most documents a bit redundant wouldn't it? Like why have the html tags if unicode can do it. I think the ideal solution would be to combine HTML and Unicode into one standard. Each tag becomes a character, and you can build anything you want from that. As a bonus we could also combine some features from .doc and .pdf and have the ultimate standard.

To be more specific, it uses Code page 437 for all of its glyphs.

I rather suspect that'll get moved to FEATURE REQUESTS.

Maybe there is an hidden keyboard shortcut for that ?

I installed the "Symbola" font from here: http://users.teilar.gr/~g1951d/ and after restarting Chromium on Linux the bird shows up. Still don't get the "pile of poo", but I'm not sure that's a bad thing.

According to the developer console, the font being used is Droid Emoji.
