HTML - prevent rendering unicode characters as emoji

9 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show how to prevent emoji rendering when we use Unicode characters in HTML.

Quick solution:

Wrap Unicode character with element adding ︎ code after the character.

Warning: In may not working on some web browsers (e.g. Google Chrome on mobile).

Note: to know more about U+FE0E code that is called VARIATION SELECTOR-15, can be found here.




Hint: if you do not see the result in the above output, it means your browser doesn't support the feature.


Practical example

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>
