I don't know if that's what it is or not. What do you see in my last post? Do you see a ; followed by a ( , or do you see the smily. I see the characters, not the smily. (I copied that from another post on this website.)

It really doesn't bother me, I was just curious why some smilies are normal, and others are just the characters as in the example.

Okay, I see the smilies in Telstar's post, but not JohnWill's. Is that because his are turned off. Is that why the smilies do not show up in some posts but do in others?

Yeah, I simply quoted JohnWill and then edited it just to show his (smilie) text
and, as you say, they show up as smilies in our replies.
I have to think the reason we see the "text only" in his reply and not the smilies is
that he must have turned them off when he composed his reply.
Otherwise, they would show up as smilies and not the text we see in his reply.

Try clearing your Cache' (Firefox) or Temp Internet Files (IE).
Seems it should be consistent one way or the other and not, as you say,
"why some smilies are normal and others show the text" (I paraphrase).

I use 3 different cleaners. I assume they are cleaning all those temp files.

Yep, but only when you have that box checked in the Options of the
particular cleaner(s) you use.

e.g. CCleaner>Windows(tab)>Internet Explorer>Temporary Internet Files
