The Smilies Plugin

Smilies are common in e-mail messages and bulletin board posts. They are used to convey an emotion, such as a smile :-) or a frown :-( . This plugin automatically converts certain smilies to a nice small icon.

Here is the list of smilies supported by this plugin. To add others, attach new icons to this topic and tweak the table below.
