Karl may have meant the text string version of emoticon. With the
icon emoticons, though, while some people may consider them jarring
and distracting in text, other people may be somewhat accustomed to
them. Those people may well be able to interpret them faster than
the actual words they replace (or embellish). But, I wonder how
well such people will do when those icons display in monochrome
at 12 point?
