make emacs understand Unicode 6
There are these unicode symbols
- 👌 #x1f44c OK HAND SIGN
- 👍 #x1f44d THUMBS UP SIGN
- 👎 #x1f44e THUMBS DOWN SIGN
when calling describe-char on them, it doesn't give their names. Is this a bug?
That's because these chars are from Unicode version 6, released in 2010-10.
Unicode 6 added 2088 chars. I don't think there are any fonts that support them yet. However, if you do unicode work, you can add char info to emacs so that “describe-char” will give you all the char's info. You need to download a text file 〔UnicodeData.txt〕. For detail, see: Emacs and Unicode Tips.
