    I’d like to propose an alternative.
    %u2026linux (or BSD (: )

    Of course the proper solution is to move towards using UTF-8.
    ( So I can use proper smiley %u263A)

    Edit: oh ted… ted ted ted. Why oh why you no support UTF-8 comments?

    Emoticon logistics would enthrall me no end, were it delivered by Monsieur Munroe.

    So… When do we see Randall in TED? That Parenthetical statement really needs some brainstorming…

    My solution is to use a different size for the smiley (ex; use size 8 and the parenthetical marks and rest of the text in size 12. Or vice-versa). Other solution is to use a different colour for the emoticon. In both cases, tools for “treating” the text need to be available.
