Avocado emoji not working in nation's pretitle.

Hello, so I have tried to insert an avocado emoji in my nation's pretitle. The emoji shows up when I paste it in settings, but when I update my nation the emoji vanishes. The avocado emoji works perfectly fine in my nation's motto, but not in any other fields. I tried experimenting with other emojis like pineapple and corn, and they both worked perfectly in all custom fields.

So is there any way that this could be fixed so the avocado emoji can be placed in pretitle fields?

Thanks in advance.

We are not UTF-8 compliant across all aspects of the site. It's a patchwork of different font sets, due to the way it was coded in 2002 and added onto somewhat randomly.. Making a uniform set would require essentially rebuilding the site. Not gonna happen.

Find something else for your pretitle.

The pineapple and corn emojis were added earlier (Unicode 6.0) than the avocado emoji (Unicode 9.0). Maybe that's why.

Oh, very interesting. That explains a lot and it's nice to know now.

Thank's for the reply :)
