    I want to write a page describing what to type for every custom smilie i have. but everytime i enter the text for the smilie it, obviously, turns into the smilie itself..

    anyone have a solution? Thanks

    I don't want to turn off smilie translation in the options because smilies wouldn't work period..

    any help is greatly appreciated

    Try putting spaces between the characters in each smilie.

    yeah, but then that defeats the purpose of showing what you should type

    Wrap your example text version in <code> </code> tags. If you're using the graphical editor, you'll need to edit the HTML to do that, but it definitely works.

    If you don't normally use <code> on your blog, you may want to play with the CSS for the tag to make it look the same. (Most themes have the code tag specified as smaller or different fonts.)

    FruitFly,
    I've tried the tages, they don't work (i.e. it still gets changed to the smilie)

    Viper,
    I'll try that and let you know how it turns out

    Weird. Code tags worked on my test site... oh well. Glad you found something that worked. :)
