Update Unicode Please ?! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Why is that a multibillion corporation cannot update a simple unicode on windows, and for this reason, emojjis show nicely on some android phone, and like gray worthless pics on windows 10?

    Sounds like unicode set on windows is outdated by several years atleast, and its sad.

  • Well:

    Looks fine to me.

    Unicode support in Windows is good. Individual applications tend to be the problem.

    This is a signature. Any samples given are not meant to have error checking or show best practices. They are meant to just illustrate a point. I may also give inefficient code or introduce some problems to discourage copy/paste coding. This is because the major point of my posts is to aid in the learning process.
