Hello Cecil ...
Here is my simple tip. All you need is a font set, which are needed
emoticons ...

\def\numcharacter#1{\char#1{}}
\let\dochar\numcharacter

\definefont[wingding][wingding.ttf at 12pt]

\starttext

{\wingding \dochar{74}\dochar{75}\dochar{76}}

\stoptext

With greeting Jaroslav Hajtmar
