don't know of any packages - maybe you could 'borrow' the ranch's lot :-)

depending on how classy you want them, you might be able to use unicode for them - here's one


and if you want colors, maybe a JTextPane instead of JTextArea

A full character list can be found at http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/block/index.htm. I don't think there are many smiley characters though.

Thanks for the reply Rob. I used this http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/block/emoticons/list.htm and tried to use the smileys listed there under "Java Data", but what I got is a small box, not a smiley, which means "doesn't support" or something. Why is that? Please help..

It means the current font doesn't support the character.
