Emoticons and Their Meanings
A co-worker of mine emailed me this table of emoticons. I thought it was a fairly comprehensive list until I did a brief Internet search. The list was just a snippet, especially in the chat room space. I rarely engage in chat activities (maybe an occasional MSN chat with a family member), so I had no idea how many emoticons were out there. I discovered that I have been misusing a couple, which probably prompted the email and subsequently the table.
Here are a few more reference links.
