Open the Settings app. Tap on General. Tap on International. Tap on Keyboard. Tap on Add New Keyboard. Tap on Emoji. To switch to it on the keyboard, tap the globe icon between 123 and the microphone icon. I'd say that's easier than downloading a third-party anything on Android.

It can be specified in HTTP using the Content-Type header. It can be specified for the HTML document using the meta element. It can be specified for a specific HTML element using ...

If they are using real Unicode emoji, you cannot see them without the Apple Color Emoji font, which only works in 10.7, or possibly by downloading and installing a black/white font that has them, like Symbola or Quivira. Unicode emoji were only standardized in October of 2010 and I think there are various apps which may not recognize them anyway. Here is ...
