what does that mean?  It must have some significance.  Great day.  Cindi

Or do you just see the  :  -  D  Inquiring minds want to know.
What you see is what you get.  I see : - D, now someone has edited my post (ha, ha) and I actually now see in post that queried what the symbols meant that there is a little yellow face with a big grin, I am sure he has been eating corn on the cob, surely, hope it was a sh2, (super sweet).  It is a short cut, I get it.

Robo, thanks, I have noticed the smiley's, but just can't be bothered to work with them.  I am rather lazy at certain things I admit.  Have a awesome day!!!  Cindi

As I write this reply there is a row of yellow faced dudes right above this box. To place one here  :-X
all I do is move the mouse over them and click on the one I want  ;) No muss, no fuss  8-)

Now Cindi,
 If you don't see three faces in what I wrote Soomething is wrong with your 'puter. Perhaps one of the whizzes can advise on that.

What you see is what you get.  I see : - D,
Cindi, 

Emoticons are facial expressions made by a certain series of keystrokes. Most often producing an image of a face sideways.  Emoticons became popular when instant messaging started and before they supported graphics.  Now a days, most IM clients convert the emitocons into graphical smileys.  There are tons of emoticons,  here is one list I found.  Some of them are obviuos,  some take more of an imagination :-D
