Smilies (or Graemlins, as we like to call them) are small graphical images that can be used to convey an emotion or feeling. Let's face it, sometimes words alone do not suffice. Adding a winking smilie, for instance, may help you clarify that you are joking. Use your smilies sparingly, though-- if overused, smilies can be downright annoying.

If you have used email or internet chat, you are likely familiar with the smilie concept. Certain standard emoticons are automatically converted into smilies. Here's the list of currently accepted smilies:
