So, I use my messenger pretty frequently, and of the Linux compatible messengers I've come across, I find Pidgin to be the most accessible and attractive platform available (which is probably why it was packaged with Jaunty ;)). The only thing I miss from my WinXP days using Windows Live Messenger, is the cool little animated emoticons - the ones that look like this:

Basically, I was just wondering if anyone here was familiar with these emoticons, and whether anyone knew a way to use them (or a similar alternative) with Pidgin?

I appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Thanks,
NM
