Star Trek Smileys and Symbols

A Short Introduction to Smileys

Smileys, also called emoticons, are little faces written in simple ASCII-letters. You can read them by turning your head 90 degrees counter-clockwise, that is in other words placing your head on your left shoulder. Usually they let readers better understand feelings and explanations of the author.

Smileys consist of a few basic elements in different variations, for example eyes :, a nose - and a mouth ), assembled that gets a smiling standard-smiley: :-)
