In the normal view the item ' 28) subsidies - if you have some strong numbers, that would be great. '
Is represented as '" 2"<img src="http://cache-www.permies.com/images/smilies/cool.gif">'
A few issues.
1) it's not ment to be a smiliy face.
2) using a page search for '28' or '28)' does not find the text with a web browser serach.
3) using a forums search for '8)' does not return any results.
4) using the google search for '8)' seems to not work due to the page changes.
a) ( in pcre )
look behind non matching assertions.
b) adding the text back as alt text in the img reference e.g.
'" 2"<img src="http://cache-www.permies.com/images/smilies/cool.gif" alt="8)">'
That's a common problem with forum software -- it takes certain combinations of numbers and punctuation marks (some of the most famous emoticons) and replaces them with graphical smilies. It's a (sometimes annoying) feature, not a bug.
When you are composing a post, you can check the "disable smilies in this message" burton to avoid the problem. If you are making numbered lists with parentheses after the numbers, checking that box is essential

I never seem to run into this, as I have smileys turned off by default (I don't like them).
So...I would need to intentionally turn them ON in order to send them.
If only there was a way to turn them OFF so I couldn't receive them.
