How to Use the Emoji Character Codes

To display any of the emoji characters in the left column within a web page, you'll need to use one of the codes in the other columns within your HTML code.

You can choose either the hexadecimal value/s from the Hexadecimal column, or the decimal value/s from the Decimal column.

You'll need to include the leading ampersand (&) and hash symbols (#;), as well as the trailing semi-colon (;). And keep the x character when using the hexadecimal value.

Where there's more than one value, use both. In these cases the emoji uses more than one Unicode character to display the glyph.

However, remove the space between each value so that they're joined (eg, 👦 🏻 becomes 👦🏻.

Alternatively, you can use the ZERO WIDTH JOINER (ZWJ) to indicate that a single glyph should be presented if available. In this case, 👦 🏻 would become 👦‍🏻. However, at the time of writing, this method has limited support, and depending on the user's system, it can have the opposite effect.
