Thank you Margaret and Susan for helping test/discover.
Got home and opened this thread with my other mac and get different results.
Mac running OS X 10.9+ shows the emoticons as full color images.
Mac running OS X 10.6.8 only shows squares with the hexadecimal value of the unicode character. And after further research the necessary font is NOT include in versions of the mac prior to OS X Lion (10.7)
For anyone interested in what support emoji and what does not the following blog lists system compatabilitiesblog.getemoji.com
