Smiley vs. smiley

For my first WebGrepper request, I wanted to pick something universal, yet difficult to "grep" as these characters inevitably end up having special meaning and involve complex escape codes - I'm especially interested in how well the Kannada letter used in the third example. This is fun! Thanks Blekko! You're the coolest.
