Smileys Info

What ARE Smileys?
A Smiley is a face lying at the side smiling. It consists of a sequence of special characters found on every keyboard. Written after a sentence it means: " Don't take this too serious. " or "I'm just poking fun at this."
What characters?
The following characters may be used to form a Smiley:
: - ) ( [ ; ] | { } > < @ ; . D # + o * X / \ 8
(not a complete list, but ideas which characters might be used)
Where to use?
Smileys are used in written text, e.g. e-mails, to express emotions which normally cannot be expressed literally. Therefore they are also known as EMOTICONS.
