Here you can find some emoticons sets:
AA> Now to my questions:
AA> 1) Am I right in assuming that emoticons are generated by tkabber by
AA> typing the ascii? In that case what's the difference between <text
AA> default="true">def</text> and <text>def</text>?
This points to default ascii representation for emoticon, to insert it when
user select it from emoticon menu.
AA> 2) I basically hate MS, but I have to catch the strings send by my MSN
AA> friends. But still I'd like to be as standard as possible. Is such a
AA> standard (formal or informal) present, and if so where? What is, for
AA> instance, the most standard way to generate a beer (in IM...),
IMHO usually peoples use :beer:
AA> and what is the most standard meaning of :-[?
