Embeds of blocks beginning by an emoji character do not render in preview

Steps to reproduce

  • Write any paragraph, starting with an emoji character (tested with :diamond_shape_with_a_dot_inside:)
  • Embed that block in another document with the ![[ syntax

Expected result

The block should be embedded in the document as usual.

Actual result

Nothing appears. Starting the paragraph with a regular character and not the emoji, though, makes the embed work.

After more testing, I havenโ€™t been able to replicate the issue entirely reliably. However something seems to mess with embeds with emojis. I will see if I can pinpoint the cause better.
