Use Emoji in file and folder names on Mac OS X

This is kind of interesting, you can apparently use the emoji characters in file and folder names in Mac.

“It is possible to use Emoji in file and folder names. When typing a file or folder name, you can choose Edit > Special Characters, click on Emoji, and add the symbols you want to use. They will display in the Finder as part of the item???s name. If you use them at the beginning of a file name, they sort above numbers but below spaces.”
