I've noticed few UI problems with the smiley panel. First on Windows Vista,
a vertical line is displayed all along the panel between the first and the
second column. This line usually appear in menus to separate the image
associated with a text in a menu item. Second the buttons have a big right
margin and the smileys are not centered in the buttons.
Both issues disappear when using buttons instead of menu item to display
smileys. That also means that smileys would need to be drawn as buttons and
have two states (normal and rollover). Should we change smileys into buttons
? Does anyone else has a better solution ?
What do you think ?
