I’ve been wondering what emoticons work here on WordPress, so conducted an experiment by copying the working emoticon code from another web site and checking to see which ones worked here. So far, here is what I have:

“:D” = 😀     “:)” =  🙂     “;)” =  😉     “:(”  =  😦       “:o” =  😮     “:shock:” =  😯     

 “:?”  =   😕      “:x” =  😡     “:P” =  😛      “:oops:” =  😳      “:cry:” =  😥    

  “:evil:” =  👿      “:twisted:” =  😈      “:roll:” =  🙄      “:!:” =  ❗   

   “:?:” =  ❓      “:idea:” =  💡      “:arrow:” =  ➡      “:|” =  😐   

   “:mrgreen:” =  :mrgreen:

UPDATE (Jan 4, 2011): Found the below chart on WordPress site:

Smiley images and the text used to produce them*:
