[NTG-context] Typesetting unicode characters

Hi list,

An XML document includes the 👍 emoji, as shown in the following snippet:

  <head><meta charset="utf8"/></head>
    <div class="bubblerx">
      <p>Thumbs up emoji: ��</p>

The document is typeset using ConTeXt, but the thumbs up emoji isn't in the
PDF. Neither Noto Emoji nor Open Sans Emoji fonts will render.

Does anyone have a minimal example that shows how to typeset such escaped

When the emoji is added directly to a document, it works fine:

\definefont [TextFontEmoji] [opensansemoji]

  \TextFontEmoji{Thumbs up emoji: 👍}

Is there something special that needs to be set for ConTeXt to interpret
the escaped unicode values as an emoji?

Thank you!
