Hello, Unicode

3rd March is hina-matsuri (雛祭り; Doll's Day) in Japan, and there is an 
emoji for it: �� Japanese Dolls. I wrote an article on failures of that 

Some vendors ship Japanese Dolls emoji that don't seem to be 
hina-matsuri dolls. I wish difficulty of implementation of 
culture-dependent emoji be given wider publicity by this post.
