trial of smilies

These are always the problems - arguments between Google/Microsoft/others!
Just to get some silly smilies in my mail I send, I'm obliged to try via Outlook Express, or take the risk of bugs from Microsoft Internet Explorer, because Firefox won't accept them!
So.....I'm trying out my smilies from Outlook Express- all the way to Blogger!
And - I'm swimming all the way...!
Will NOT work with Google Firefox, but will it accept them from Outlook Express? Swimming Diving

The interesting point is that it will not accept them on any Google product!
OK - if I REALLY want smilies, I can send them via outlook express, but I would like to know the reason why Google have sort of "blacklisted" Smiley Central - for my own peace of mind.
I know there are "spy" programmes built into the Smiley Central, (like Google)and I accept that as the price to pay for a "free" programme.
Of course - I could always change my browser to IE7 or 8, but I don't particularly want to do that!
Am I missing out on a Google Smiley programme or do they just not want to know?
I'm off to "Google Search" - GOOGLE SMILEYS!
