Again, the problem is not that emojis aren't colored, they are. The problem is that we are applying the wrong matrix and the scale makes the icons tiny, almost invisible. This only happens when the font is used as a system fallback, so a possible test would be to use Emoji One explicitly in the reference and the default font in the test for the same character. Both should render the same emoji at the same scale. I wrote this test indeed, but it didn't work because emojis are not positioned at the same place in both cases. This is because of the font line, used to position the characters in a line. In the case of using Emoji One explicitly the font line is Emoji One, so the metrics used for the line are the Emoji One. But then Emoji One is used as a fallback DejaVu or Liberation are the font line and the metrics used are not the Emoji One. At first I thought it was a WebKit bug, but then I noticed that Firefox and Chromium do exactly the same thing. I'll try to make a non-ref test, but I'm not sure if the render tree is different.
