Unicode Private-Use Codes

Google begins to convert Japanese emoji to Unicode private-use codes. The Unicode Consortium is a non-profit corporation devoted to developing, maintaining, and promoting software internationalization standards and data, particularly the Unicode Standard, which specifies the representation of text in all modern software products and standards. Unicode was adopted as an international standard in 1992.
