ASCII Art is signatures, pictures, smileys and figlets made with the standard keyboard characters. ASCII art needs to be viewed with a fixed width font like FixedSys or Courier New. I prefer FixedSys.

Emoticons (also called smileys) are used in email, chat and other Net communication. They allow the writer to show humour, sarcasm, etc. This is useful in the typewritten medium of the Internet where communication can be misunderstood. Smileys are faces made from the basic keyboard (ASCII) characters. To 'read' them look at them sideways. :-) Text based only, not web graphics. See Emojis.

ASCII art which is used for signatures in email and other areas of the Net. A signature file should not be over 5 lines in length and in width it should be 72 characters or less. I find the best test is to try it in MS Notepad, it won't warp if it fits in Notepad.

This category is for art thats not quite ASCII art as we know it in the ASCII newsgroup and on the email lists, etc. This is sometimes the art used on AOL chatrooms where the font is Ariel 10pts, instead of a fixed width font. Also, as with the colourized ASCII art the standard keyboard characters are not the only characters used. To save confusion I have put all the art called: ANSI art, HTML art, text art and macro art in a category by themselves.
