This short note shows how to disable emojis and prevent Unicode characters in HTML from rendering as emojis.

The UTF has special characters to control the rendering.
These special characters tell the OS/browser if it is required to covert the previous glyph to emoji or disable emoji and render it as a text:
️– disable emoji and render the previous glyph as a text
︎– display the previous glyph as an emoji
