Get Rid of the Smiley J Problem Caused by Microsoft Office Applications

,----[ Quote ]
| You've seen it before: That strange, cutesy 
| "J" that occasionally appears in email and 
| seems contextually like it's meant to be a 
| smiling emoticon. You may even be sending 
| these little "J"s without even knowing it. 
| Tech blogger Chris Pirillo explains:
|     [F]or some inexplicable reason [In 
|     Microsoft Office applications], some 
|     brilliant engineer thought it wise to 
|     correct ":)" as a smiley rendered in a 
|     specific font face when composing rich 
|     text documents (and/or HTML email). 
|     This is why people think you're crazy 
|     for inserting random "J" characters in 
|     your emails â they don't have the same 
|     fonts installed on their machine!

KOffice 2010 Summer Sprint Report

,----[ Quote ]
| Hot on the heels of the 2.2 release of
| KOffice -- the first release we feel that
| users can give a try and use for real work
| -- the KOffice developers met in Essen-
| Horst in Germany, in the wonderful Linux
| Hotel. Thanks to sponsorship by the KDE
| e.V. and the hard work by Alexandra Leisse
| and Inge Wallin, we could spend three days
| discussing and hacking.
