I used much better emoticons on the University of Illinois's PLATO system in 1978. See some examples here:

PLATO was an education system which was way ahead of its time. In '78 PLATO used plasma touch screens (plasma screens were invented for PLATO), had 512x512 bit-mapped graphics, multi-media terminals, multi-lingual content, e-mail, chat, newsgroups, and more.

My wife, who is Chinese, say these emoticons may well be Chinese also. What is sure is that they are widely used in chatrooms and forums in Mainland China, among many other.

2,3,4 and 5 require Chinese font. But game is endless: 50,000 different characters are available.
