Game Center player alias limitations

Hi, I've tried to find this information on the web but I keep ending up empty handed.

Are there any limitations on players alias in game center? For instance:
- Max characters?
- Kind of characters?
- Smileys?

How do you handle game center aliases when using a custom font (sprite)? Do you just hide any characters that is not in your fontmap?

Okay, total freedom apparently (can have Japanese characters in there), only limitation is the amount of characters which is capped at about 30 characters.

Cheers!
