# Inserting a ❤ symbol into text

I'm trying to put a piece of text into Blender 2.76, most of it works and is OK, putting the ❤ symbol into the text editor pane works. When I try and put it into a text object, all I get is a square symbol (i.e. can't display it). I've tried copy and pasting the char in (even the Insert Text pane entry field), tried changing the font and run out of ideas.

Is there a specific font I should use? Or is there something else I'm missing?

Update: Finally managed to get something I was after, here's a render of it so far...

If you're on Windows try selecting the font "MS Mincho" (it should be C:\Windows\Fonts\MSMINCHO.TTF). Or MS Gothic (msgothic.ttc), this is how Libreoffice Writer gets it.
• Managed to find fnt = bpy.data.fonts.load(...), so on to the next problem! Thanks for your help. – Nigel Ren Jul 5 '17 at 8:09
