Did you notice J in your mails where it should be a smiley?
It shows ‘J’ here where it should be a smiley as shown in above screenshot.
So, why it’s showing J instead of a smiley? Microsoft Outlook replaces 🙂 with it’s J character of Wingdings font. It’s a proprietary font by Microsoft – as you expected Linux, Mac OS X and any other Operating System doesn’t have this font by default. If you don’t have this font, then you’ll see J.
If you are using Google Chrome, right click on the J letter and click on Inspect Element. This is how it looks in html code. As you can see this tag uses Wingdings font-family.
J for Smile userscript that I wrote will replace this J with the corresponding Yahoo Emoticons.
J for 🙂 – Happy
K for 🙁 – Sad
L for 😐 – Straight Face
