OK, so maybe this isn't the most intellectually stimulating question of the year but I have to ask:)

I did do a search before I'm screamed at but all I could find was someone else asking the same question without a reply and al of the other threads that came up were in foreign languages, well foreign to me anyway:)

So, by now you can see that I am able to type the strokes to get a "smiley face" but my question is:

What do I type to get other emoticons?

I want, angry, embarrassed, surprised, know the kind of thing.

Is there a list somewhere or a link to another site with the standard keystrokes?

Thanks in advance,

Been wondering about that too.

And now we all know that it can't be inserted in the message title . LOL

Was wondering too Jul 6, 2006

I'd been wondering about that too but never asked - I thought if there isn't a smiley selector around maybe it's a feature you only get when you have so-and-so-many KudoZ points.icon_wink.gif
(You can tell I'm not a regular on the forums, right?)
Thanks for this question and its answer!:-)

Shortcut tip Jul 6, 2006

If you see a smiley or any other html trick on a message, and wonder how the poster was ever able to do it, all you need to do is click the [Reply with quote] link at the bottom and view the message with all its tags naked. For instance, hitting that button now, you can see how I made the font red two lines above.

Hope this helps!
