Forcing Mathematica to render by particular system font

Hello, I wish to have symbols like \[HappySmiley] in notebooks to be rendered by particular system font, not by Mathematica's font. But Mathematica automatically replaces such symbols and renders them by it's own font. I tried to use PrivateFontOptions option to turn off this behavior but I have failed. I have tried the following: In[1]:= Style["\:263a \:263b", PrivateFontOptions -> {"OperatorSubstitution" -> False, "WindowsUseTrueTypeNames" -> False}, FontFamily -> "Lucida Sans Unicode", Large] Out[1]= \[HappySmiley] \:263b But "\[HappySmiley]" is still rendered by Mathematica's font. How to force rendering such symbols by system font?
