Right, that is what happens when you add it to your message, but once you click on the button to "post message", it will post the actual emoticon. It uses html for the emoticons, which is what you are seeing with the greater than sign, a number and the less than sign. Please try clicking on the post message button and I'm sure you will see the emoticon post properly.
"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it." - Michael Jordan
