It's closer to ;-), but "<0.1 wink>" through "<0.9 wink>" (and an uncountable
number of others) have no literal translation to primitive emoticons.  BTW, I
started doing that when editing a Twin Peaks newsletter that got snail-mailed
to non-computer people as well as emailed to geeks.  The former had no idea
what to make of ;-) and the like, but grokked <wink> & friends instantly.  And
that's why I use Python too.
