Replace (some) emojis with emoticons
Spark replaces certain text combinations with emoticons.
For example, this text gets replaced by a nice smiley emoticon:
With unicode, we now have characters that represent a smiley, such as this character:
Spark currently shows the smiley image for the first example, but will show an uglier text font character for the bottom example.
Where possible, Spark should display the same image for unicode smileys that correspond with 'plain text' smileys. Both examples above should be rendered the same, for example.
The new conversions work. Unfortunately there is a problem with updating Spark, which i have filed as a separate and which looks similar to SPARK-1888. And i think this started when we have enabled uninstall of older version in install4j, which had to be enabled as now all the libraries come with versions numbers in their names and simple overwrite wouldn't update Spark properly leaving old libraries behind.
