Why do some questions, answers, and messages on Quora contain figures like this: U0001f60f?

The Quora text editor does not support ANY Plane 1 Unicode characters: characters whose 5th digit is 1, not 0. For example, U0001f60f. Emoji are included in Plane 1. So is Gothic: Nick Nicholas’ answer to Will Quora ever support emoji?

It’s not, I would contend, targeted at Emoji; that’s just a “happy accident”.

But these Plane 0 dingbats, I’d argue, are Emojis:

⏱ ☃☹☺☻♨⛄⛱✊✋✌

And they render just fine.
