What do Emojis mean?

Emojis look like pictures or icons, but they are not.

They are letters from the Unicode (UTF-8) character set.

Almost all of the characters and symbols in the world can be used with UTF-8.

The HTML charset Attribute

The HTML charset attribute tells the computer what kind of characters to use.

A web browser needs to know the character set used on an HTML page in order to show it correctly.

This is what the <meta> tag says:

<meta charset=”UTF-8″>

If you don’t tell HTML otherwise, UTF-8 will be used.

Characters in UTF-8

Many UTF-8 characters can’t be typed on a keyboard, but they can always be shown using numbers (called entity numbers):

X is 88, Y is 89 and Z is 90


<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset=”UTF-8″>

<p>I will display X Y Z</p>
<p>I will display &#88; &#89; &#90;</p>
