You can only guess what @makinero means.

Yes, but an educated guess because the unicode range U+1F600 to U+1F64F primarily contains emoticons.

Your information also seems to be incomplete or misleading, for newbies at least.
A good starting point for newbies is:
https://unicode.org/faq/utf_bom.html#General
better than anything you or i may put as info into this forum.

UTF-32 is NOT a synonym for Unicode, it's only one of Unicode encodings
Yes but the one encoding where every single Unicode code point is mapped 1:1 to its 32bit value
https://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode11.0.0/ch03.pdf#G7404 wrote:D76 Unicode scalar value:
Any Unicode code point except high-surrogate and low-surrogate code points.
• As a result of this definition, the set of Unicode scalar values consists of the
ranges 0 to D7FF and E000 to 10FFFF, inclusive.

There is lack of info about endianness (byte order) in the table you have quoted and you also ignore the byte order problem. Some people may not understand why they can't see the number from the table when using hex view in Lister.
Don't you think that you leave any newbie far behind you with this point?
Is this important if you enter unicode symbols or search via regex for unicode symbols?
BTW: i don't use Unicode emoticons except the set of smileys which can be encoded with ASCII characters

Code: Select all

8-) :-( ;-) :-) ... :-|
independent from endianness, you will always be able to read and decode this as human (as long as you are a L2R reading person;-).
Unfortunately the forum software automatically translates these character sequences into single Unicode characters:

It can be simpler, but it does not work with all Regex search engines.

Is this a troll (or a bear) emoticon?
Do you want a red herring (or a salmon): ><((((*> | ><))))°> ?:)

You know that you can just disable smilies in your message?

Yes (already set since ages...):
User control panel -> Edit posting defaults : Enable smilies by default: ... (o) no

User control panel -> Edit display options: Display smilies as images ... (o) yes
(I want to see the postings as they are created by the writer ;-)

So you also know that ASCII smilies are replaced with old fashioned animated GIFs rather than with emoji glyphs?

It's not about your settings or care now, it's about your misleading wording here: viewtopic.php?p=351539#p350195

Don't drink and write, even in New Year…
