i try to answer the question how you can use the "smileys..or emoticons ( my english is not very well im from germany)
first you download the smiley and save it (maybe) in desktop/dictonary smileys..
then you must have winzip (because the 4 or 5 pics of one smileys
are in zipformat). winzip for example Formula-1.zip and you become 5pics...then you add the pics (you must have msn 5 or above..)by the option add your own smileys or add.... (click the smiley on the messengerwindows...) then you must add a keycombination for every pic like f1 f2 f3 f4 f5... if you are chatting with your friends, you can make the keycombination and you will see the smiley..( i hope you can understand me...)
