As of now the SmiliesPlugin pre-configures for indifferent only the version ":-I". This can cause issues if people don't know it and in addition do not immediately realize that it is a capital i instead of |. Sometimes the capital I looks pretty much like the | and can hardly be distinguished if not seen side by side.

So I'd recommend adding to the default configuration of the SmiliesPlugin the ":-|" version.

The only worry I have is that people will run into trouble with tables.

Just look at an example like

Hello :- Hi

Now is the third | a table divider or part of a Smiley?

-- KennethLavrsen - 05 Jun 2009

Yes, that's probably the main reason why it wasn't added yet. I guess we don't have something to escape the | so it won't be recognized as column separator?

Right now putting it leads to:

emoticon indifferent with vertical-bar.png
Result when defining the emoticon indifferent with the special character for vertical-bar.

Shouldn't we have a way to escape the pipe or vertical bar character?

um, isn't there \| ?

one two
:-\   indifferent
:-| |

obviously not frown, sad smile

"indifferent" has been assigned to :I and :-I using an upper case i instead of a pipe symbol.
