It only takes typos or using capitals or missing one of the SQUARE brackets off. Simples wink

don't leave a [ space ] in between, for starters!

Stop using smilies?

Well, I don't know what a browser is blush but can you cut and paste what you see here?

sorry, I still reckon you are typing them wrong. I will need to see documentary evidence on a thread before I believe you.

When you see other people have typed:
Oh that's funny smile

I will give you a clue - they have made a MISTAKE grin

puppymonkey's emoticons all look ok to me - do they look like text to you? In which case it is something wrong with your computer, not MN.

PuppyMonkey Mon 17-Aug-09 14:22:04

Doing what on purpose??? Getting confused now.

no, puppymonkey's smilies all look a1 bonza fine to me.

I think it's summat your end, luv. That'll be £50 for the callout and you'll have to get a corgi registered chap out for the repair. Cash is fine.
