The need for unicode concerns copy & paste, not making emojis. I'll test it, before it didn't mangle unicode in preview, but when you hit the "submit" button is when it got mangled.
If the following isn't mangled, they fixed it:
The green fur on Tubarkâ(TM)s neck stood on end as her hairy, tentacled arm with its seven tentacled fingers pointed to the bright afternoon sky. âoeDo you see that?â she exclaimed. All four of her eyes stared at the sky as her hairy tail drooped and the feathers on her forehead stood up.
âoeYes. What was it?â
âoeI think it is a dragon, as in ancient tales. We think they are only in stories, but maybe dragons are real?â
Targov shook her head. âoeIt cannot be. This must be a dream. Or it is something we know not of. Come, we need to see The Elder.â
