Problem: I can't make the >_< emoticon
Description: A >_< emoticon results in >_ and then the server shitting itself because it believes I have opened a tag. Is there any way to make an exception in the code that recognizes this ">_<" as a unique string prior to recognizing <> as tag markers?

Or could we maybe have emojis? I would pay money to upload my own custom eidolon emoji set. I mean, sure, users know I'm supposed to be dead, but do they truly understand I'm haunting them from beyond the grave? It's so hard for the formerly living to express ourselves.

You can use the standard utf-8 emoji set on SE. that's a thing now. It all depends on whether you have the font installed on your system windows8 and up has it I believe and most phones should have it. v2 will probably have an emoji keyboard available.

You can also do: &gt;_&lt; = >_< but I'm not going to make exceptions in the html filter for that. It just opens up a bag of worms security wise.
