iPhone smilies on a Windows Phone

If I'm texting someone who has a Windows Phone, will smilies show up properly on their phone? I know some phones just show a little square where the smilie should be.

Well, it happens between ALL OSs - one does something that the other is only partly compatible with.
Or check out Twitter - some iOS Twitter apps deliver emoticons that the native Twitter app on iOS cannot render.
Most iPhone smilies will work just fine on WP, but some won't - and vice versa.

Here's a recent article on Unicode 7.0 - Apple, Google and MS are all members of the Unicode Consortium http://www.idownloadblog.com/2014/06/16/unicode-7-0-includes-250-new-emoji-icons-that-could-come-to-future-ios-update/
