The unicode character can be made in GNOME by pressing "Ctrl+Shift+u" and 
then release the three keys. That will render an underline "u". Now you 
only need to type the secuence of characters to get the desired symbol, 
i.e., the unicode secunce for the smilye is "0x263a", so:

Ctrl+Shift+u [release the keys] 0x263a [press enter]

There are some sites holding big lists of unicode characters, like

Mmm, suspension should not trigger a shutdown or restart of the network
