Well, animated emoticons are not possible with using a

RichTextbox, which is what we currently use.

BUT, there is hope on the horizon.

If we move from RichText based

to HTML based Text Windows, then animated emoticons are totally possible.  The only drawback so far, is that with .Net

Framework 1.1, there is a big lack of a good Web Control.

With the .Net Framework 2.0 (Currently in Beta), there is a

much better control, and support for it has vastly improved. So, when 2.0 comes out of Beta, IceChat 6 will most likely be

converted to .Net 2.0, and then we can finally ditch the RichText box, which has causes IceChat nightmares for long
