Where's everyone finding these red and yellow smiley/frowney faces? Am I missing something?

The software automatically translates certain character combinations into smileys, etc.
A colon followed by a single close-parenthesis generates a yellow smiley. A colon followed by a capital "D" generates a bigger grin. A colon followed by a single open-parenthesis generates a frown. (There's another which I've forgotten.)
I wasn't supposed to say anything about this, but as a concession to certain AOL members, Jerry has promised to add character combinations to generate sheep, middle fingers, and--especially for MICKSTA and me--one of Dennis Vacco sleeping late. [img]http://www.wines.com/ubb/biggrin.gif[/img]

Gotcha, but how did you figure this out?

<<Gotcha, but how did you figure this out?>>
I found this by clicking the FAQ icon at the top and printing it all out.

Stupid me. I don't read the directions for software I buy, either. Duh. [img]http://www.wines.com/ubb/frown.gif[/img]
