Icons for Smileys, Smiley Faces and Winks in Microsoft's MSN Messenger
"Emoticons" is a word created from the combination of the words emotion and icon. They are icons that express emotions.
These are graphic icons that you can use in Microsoft's MSN Messenger program and other instant messanging software by entering a keyboard shortcut combination.
Many are based on combinations used in e-mail and sms messaging before graphics were available and can still be used for that purpose.
