    I have tried to find a download to add just the simple smiley faces to my

    outlook express messages (6) but have been unsuccessful. I have also seen

    them come through on word documents from others to myself. I also have

    Office Prof '07. How can I get these ? I don't want all the fancy ones that

    give you 200 or so, just the different smiley's. Thanks

    Emoticon are just text strings, so enter the text that you want to use for

    the emoticon. >;-
    For what text strings are commonly used to express different emoticon, there

    are plenty of sites that list them and Google still works:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=emoticon

    Even if your e-mail client displays cutsy little images for emoticons, they

    are still just text strings. That means they may only look like those text

    strings in the recipient's e-mail client. Whether the recipient has an

    e-mail client that supports emoticon transliteration (from text string to

    graphic image) depends on what e-mail client that recipient uses and if they

    have it configured to show the images (since parsing could make emoticons

    out of text that wasn't meant to be an emoticon). You won't know if the

    recipient will see an image or text string for the emoticon text string that

    you enter into your message.

    Maybe yes, maybe no. Some of Windows' font sets contain a few smileys, like

    this one: ☺ It's U+263A in the Arial font, in case it doesn't show.
