Emoji Tags - Heat Scale

I’m looking to include a tag group of hot pepper emojis to mark the ‘heat’ of a particular topic in a category (grading the actual OP content, not how many likes and links is has, etc).

Just something simple like:

  • :hot_pepper:
  • :hot_pepper::hot_pepper:
  • :hot_pepper::hot_pepper::hot_pepper:
  • :hot_pepper::hot_pepper::hot_pepper::hot_pepper:
  • :hot_pepper::hot_pepper::hot_pepper::hot_pepper::hot_pepper:

I’ve found a couple of old topics on it, and it seemed like I could mix emoji and text to achieve something similar - but while it looks like it works in the manage tag group screen, it strips them out by the time I get to the create topic composer to use them?

I also found a more recent post suggesting that it may be possible to target specific tags with css and style them that way, but I’m unclear on how much scope for change there is?

Could someone point me in the right direction? Am I missing something simple, or perhaps there’s a theme component/plugin that will help?

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
