Thanks. This confirms what I thought. My NotoColorEmji.tff which is
located in ~/.fonts is not being used. I have tried various fontconfig
recipes in my ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d. None of them help - I'm not
surprised since they were largely guesses. I'm running Debian 9.13 and I
read somewhere on the Internet that this is too old for google emoji
color fonts. I don't know if that's correct or not. If it is then I'll
probably stick with emacs-emojify (which I quite like) until I upgrade
my machine.

Thank you very much for your kind help.

Best wishes,

Colin Baxter.
