On Mac OS X Lion, I'm able to access various country flags in the AppleColorEmoji font. When I display a string containing the glyphs in a UITextView that has the font property set to AppleColorEmoji, they get replaced with two, separate, boxed in characters. For example, the Japanese flag glyph gets replaced with a boxed in J and a boxed in P. Does anyone know why this is and/or how I can remedy it? Because my application is intended to be one that users may copy/paste strings from, making the glyph instead be a UIImage would not be an acceptable remedy. For now, I'm thinking I just won't have the flags included.
