What is the full list of emoticons?

You can use Skype emoticons to liven up your instant message conversations, or you can add them to your mood message to let your friends know how you’re feeling.

Each emoticon is represented by a shortcode, that is, a set of symbols (punctuation marks, letters and special signs) or a specific word in the brackets. You can either type the shortcode of the emoticon you want to use directly in the chat or mood message window, or you can select them from the emoticon palette.
