Hi David and All,

	I've made an SVG Font supporting Emoji Unicode points available at:

http://pagefire.com/demo/

	The relevant links are:

http://pagefire.com/demo/emoji1.svg - which references the font file at:
http://pagefire.com/demo/abbremoji.svg

	Of course, this can all be encoded better, so the example at:
http://pagefire.com/demo/emoji2.svg  - references an SVGZ font file at:
http://pagefire.com/demo/abbremoji.svgz

	The files can be viewed either by loading the Pagefire plugin
into Internet Explorer 6->8 or by loading them in Batik (ASV too probably
but not tested).

	Note, the 9 Emoji glyphs encoded in the SVGZ file come to
a bit less than 2.3 kbytes, i.e. equivalent to a 24x24 pixel RGBA image
but of course can be scaled to arbitrary size like any scalable font should.

	I expect to add to the Emoji set there and release updated
versions as time permits.

	Public domain by the way, use as you wish.

Alex
