Miles of Smiles

Does anyone else wish that html didn't so often switch the text smiley face to a graphical smiley face? The colon/parenthesis is a simple indication of a smile that fits typographicaly into the flow of the text. While the graphic form is a brightly colored shit-eating grin that dominates the whole message. :-)

Imagine how those smiley faces would screw up Tom Robbins' prose.

What do you think about the smiley face? Do you use it on the computer? Anywhere else? Got it tatooed?
