Smileys :-)

From: Jeff Johnson


Those of you in the SF Bay Area may have noticed that Herb Caen has
discovered the little smileys that computer-people use in e-mail, and
has been both using them in his column and collecting interesting ones.
 Some ones I hadn't seen before (mixed with a few I made up):

:-D	very happy

:-{	very sad	

:-I	vexed

8-0	incredulous

B-)	Gary Larson glasses

S:-}	Dudley Do-right

[:-)	M.C. Hammer

7:-)	Reagan

/:=	Hitler

%:*D	Bozo

O:-)	Jesus

}:-)	The Devil

And, if you turn them over:

(-:P	Beaver Cleaver

(-:]P	Spike Lee

(-:?	Elvis	

(-:C	Viking

(-:K	My Favorite Martian

(-:E	King Hussein

(-:B	Felix the Cat

Enough!
JJ

You can find some extra smileys here, contributed by Benjamin Vander Jagt. (They have also been added to the text version.)
