    Is there any way, before doing smiley substitution, of checking before hand that the wink smiley combination isn't preceded by a html special character, i.e. ("...blah..." )
    where the space between ; and ) here stops it from being a wink smiley
    should really end up looking like ("...blah..." ) as opposed to ("...blah..."

    Of course, since I don't really know what code is driving the rendering of these smileys, I might be asking for something that would require tearing out and mangling the very guts of your infrastructure to fix what is just a nuisance

    A nice idea, probably a Greasemonkeyscript could take care of that for you.

    Aha!, that's as good a reason to branch out into another language (javascript). I'll look into this one.
