In some cases, such as the second Devanagari example below, the ZWJ follows the second rather than the first character.
When a ZWJ is placed between two emoji characters, it can also result in a new form being shown, such as the family emoji, made up of two adult emoji and one or two child emoji.
The character's code point is U+200Dzero width joiner (HTML ‍·‍). In the InScript keyboard layout for Indian languages, it is typed by the key combination Ctrl+Shift+1. However, many layouts use the ']' key for this character.
