Tag: several smileys
HnD supports a nice collection of smileys to use in your texts to illustrate the meaning of the texts. These smileys are custom designed for HnD so they fit in the layout. Use smileys with care, since misinterpretation of your texts based on the smileys can occur plus some users might find all those happy faces annoying. You can't use smileys inside code-blocks.

The following collection is currently supported:

:D Laugh	:( Angry	:) Regular
;) Wink	8) Cool	:P Tongue
:? Confused	:o Shocked	:/ Dissapointed
;( Sad	:! Embarassed
				
 

All HTML code is transfered into XML readable code first and then back to readable text, which will result in having your HTML code being readable as plain text and it won't get embedded into the resulting page. The same goes for script. All TAB characters are transformed into 4 spaces, thus 4 &nbsp; characters.
