Using Smilies

Smilies are small graphical symbols that help you express msn or moods, which may be helpful in the textual environment of the chat room. Typing a colon followed by a right parentheses in your message entry field, for example, will produce a small happy faced smilie when the message is displayed on the screen. Smilies may be sent on their own, or mixed in with your text message. There are many smilies included with the Chat program that you can use in your chatting. They are pictured below, along with the characters required to produce them.
