    This is a trivial one but....

    when I'm posting a message and I want to add a smilie somewhere in the middle of my text, it is always placed at the end of the message - even tho my cursor is somewhere else (ie where I want the smilie placed :rolleyes: ).
    I can cut and paste the smilie to put it where I want - just a tiny bit annoying.

    Is this normal or am I missing something ?

    Yes it does the same with me. I used and that is the way it works.
    There is one site where I have to use IE and it places the smiles where the cursor is.

    What site is it that the smilies go where your cursor is Hewee.....perhaps we could get a look at the code and implement something similar here.

    It is when I use IE that the smilies goes where the curors is.

    OK I guess it is also the site because I just tried IE here and the smilies went to the end. :(

    The site is http://thecatacombs.ipbhost.com/

    I think there should be a WYSIWYG text box instead like on web wiz forums, cuz it's really nice and handy and works on all OSs
