    So... if I type:

    Code:
    :p
    I get ':p'

    However (!), when I type:

    Code:
    :P
    I get ':p'

    Hahaha. It's really minor and not even worth the time it would take to read this thread, but I'm just used to typing :p. I'm not a smiley addict or anything, just, uh... I'll stop now. ;)

    Aaaah! :eek: The return of the smiley! :D

    P.S. :confused:

    I don't really see a question in there...

    Your observation on typing out that particular smily, on the other hand, is 100% correct.

    The reason that smilie characters are case sensitive is that they are simulating the appearance of the smilie. In contrast, tags like for bold aren't case sensitive.
