The MSX.org content manager already seems to to support UTF-8. But when I type an emoji, it shows as ???? in the forums. So we're stuck with just the site penguin emojis that have their known issues.

Could the admins please add support for the UTF-8 emojis?

It's really not a big deal, but I'd like to be able to use emojis too.
Sorry for the creator(s), but I think the MRC pinguins icons are very unexpressive.

The ones of MSXVillage are far much expressive imo:

The forum supports 16-bit Unicode code points only, so no characters above 0FFFFH.

However you can use (decimal) HTML character escape sequences to add emojis, like 😀.

Success.

I would have preferred emojis that give an identity to MRC.
