    Mike> U+24C2 is an Emoji which has both a text and an emoji presentation. 

    Mike> http://unicode.org/reports/tr51/#Emoji_Variation_Selector_Notes

    Mike> http://www.unicode.org/Public/emoji/12.0/emoji-data.txt

    Mike> U+1F600 is an emoji, which has only emoji representation:

    Mike> $ grep 1F600 emoji-data.txt 
    Mike> 1F600         ; Emoji                # E1.0   [1] (😀)       grinning 
    Mike> 1F600         ; Emoji_Presentation   # E1.0   [1] (😀)       grinning 
    Mike> 1F600         ; Extended_Pictographic# E1.0   [1] (😀)       grinning 

    Mike> It displays without problems in colour in my Emacs.

    Mike> Note that U+24C2 does not have the "Emoji_Presentation" tag:

    Mike> $ grep 24C2 emoji-data.txt 
    Mike> 24C2          ; Emoji                # E0.6   [1] (Ⓜ️)       circled M
    Mike> 24C2          ; Extended_Pictographic# E0.6   [1] (Ⓜ️)       circled M

    Mike> It has to variations, text representation and emoji representation:

    Mike> $ grep 24C2 emoji-variation-sequences.txt 
    Mike> 24C2 FE0E  ; text style;  # (1.1) CIRCLED LATIN CAPITAL LETTER M
    Mike> 24C2 FE0F  ; emoji style; # (1.1) CIRCLED LATIN CAPITAL LETTER M

    Mike> (U+1F600 is not in emoji-variation-sequences.txt as it has only emoji 

    Mike> $ grep 1F600 emoji-test.txt 
    Mike> 1F600                                      ; fully-qualified     # 😀 
E1.0 grinning face
    Mike> $ grep 24C2 emoji-test.txt 
    Mike> 24C2 FE0F                                  ; fully-qualified     # Ⓜ️ 
E0.6 circled M
    Mike> 24C2                                       ; unqualified         # Ⓜ

    Mike> As you can see above, U+1F600 is already fully-qualified on its own.

    Mike> If I test in gedit, U+24C2 on  its  own is displayed in black and

    Mike> U+24C2 U+FE0E is displayed in black and white in gedit as well.
    Mike> U+24C2 U+FE0F is displayed in colour in gedit  using the "Noto Color
    Mike> Emoji" font.

OK. How do you determine which font is being used in gedit?

    Mike> These selectors don’t work in Emacs for me. U+24C2, U+24C2 U+FE0E, and
    Mike> U+24C2 U+FE0F *all* display in black and white for me in Emacs.

OK, so itʼs not just me. Iʼll have to do some reading and some

    Mike> The presence of such selectors in a currently visible buffer make my

Can you try my patch from
<https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=39133#41> ? I probably
should have pushed it already...
