Isn't the writer for posting messages in HTML 'format'? The smileys are 
the last item in the line just above the text.

While the editor comes up in HTML, you control how the final message is 
actually sent - HTML or plain text - by the setting in either the 
Contact List or in Preferences>Composition>Send Preferences.

The only thing I find rather annoying in TB is that you need to do a 
slight fiddle before the smiley you select actually appears on YOUR 
screen - or it may not even show up at the other end :-( :-( (I bet you 
are now seeing 2 frownies, right? An example of what I call annoying 

When you get to the point of where you want to put in a smiley, hit 
space a couple of times then hit backspace and then click on the smiley 
you want - which then should appear on your screen. If it doesn't then 
repeat the exercise. I didn't do what I just suggested above which is 
why you should see 2 frownies...


Attorney:   All your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
Witness:    Oral.
