Wow much better than anything I have used before. Looks a lot better in serious blogging might even use on business website as well... :)

So much better than the default yellow circles

Instead of wasting time hunting down smilies that match my site's color scheme and theme, these "plaintext" smilies get the job done with a minimum of fuss. Since they're technically a font, you can use CSS to style them to match your site's color scheme very quickly, and if you're really enamored with the default smiley yellow ball style:

	padding: 3px;
	background-color: yellow;
	border: 1px solid black;
	border-radius: 50%;

This plug-in is a definite download.

Works like a charm

Neat plugin, works as described

What Sarah Gooding said before, plus: I’d love to see the plugin being updated with a small API, i.e. a filter to implement custom emoticon fonts. If the author is interested in/ open to collaboration, please leave a quick comment.

Just perfect!

All you have to do is activate it and see how those old-fashioned smilies turn into crisp and plain text-based smilies that adjust to your content's line-height and color, making for a much nice experience.

Better than the original

These emoticons actually make the articles more readable.

Simple and elegant

Great plugin! Works really well. Elegant replacement for colourful smileys that often don't match the text and content.

Emoticons that fit every WP site's design!

Excellent job! Easy to handle plugin with great design effect - no yellow balls disturbing your website design any longer :-)

Good rating because author added support for comments
By , for WP 3.5.1

It looks good ! It's quite simple. Now it's available for comments and excerpt.

Unfortunately the CSS is loaded on all pages. I know you can't know if I'm using it here or there. Maybe the plugin could ask the user if it's only for comment section (which is logical) or for all contents.
