I agree.  I can see the use in the composition window, however.  I guess we both have to read a bit more carefully :)

Your message was posted about 40 minutes after I retired and I read it first thing this morning before I had my first cup of coffee.  I plead caffeine deficiency.

Carson, if you've stayed awake through all this, my original answer to you was correct.  Sorry we got sidetracked.

I guess I don't see a need for title text on any emoticon - as you say, it ought to be self explanatory. I do have a "thing" about consistent behavior, though. It's always mildly distressing to me to see the same thing act differently in different contexts - it violates basic design principles.  ::) Even though in this case it is a matter of form rather than substance.

Anyway, the emoticon "hover" mystery is solved and please don't think I am asking you are anybody to do work to alter anything.  :)

You got it ,John

 I guess we've come a long way--- any offers on mine?


Not unless I can trade you my wife.. She'd kill me if I got another piece of "Computer Junk"

Great stuff, Ned and Tom,
   Yes, I stayed awake and read every syllable. Amazing how much chatter this little problem created. Should I apologize? :)

   I guess I should not have called it a problem, rather an anomaly.

If I want too interpret an emoticon on the message window, all I need to do is check the property of the icon and read the alternate text entry. Easy.

    T'was interesting.

John, thanks for the offer.
   My wife is trying to kill me, if I don't get rid of that old junk.

If we did that swap thing, would that solve both our problems; can't figure that one out. :)

Ned:  Yep, I understand.

Should I apologize?

Absolutely not! Heck, we should give you an award for starting an interesting discussion that caused a number of us to learn something.

Thank you Tom,  please, no award. I already have one from a bowling league in 1955.

Hey, I have one from about 1948.  Is there a museum for old bowling trophies? :)
