Secret Skype emoticons: summarised list

Further to my list of Skype emoticons, I thought that I would do a re-posting - the quality of the emoticons' images in the previous posting was poor.

Of course Skype users can click on the Emoticon button and use the standard emoticons

or type in the following:

{paste them into your Skype chat to see the emoticons}
{note: the duplicate smileys show that there's more than 1 way to type the smiley}

So, how did I find all of these....
I "translated" this posting into Windows talk:
Go to the Skype.exe file ("c:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe") and view it with a text viewer.
Search for the text "TSmileyData", then you'll see all the Smiley texts - I cleaned those up to get to the list above :)
