Smileys in posts look off because they also get the 14px margin at the bottom that's intended for normal images. Smileys however also have the wp-smiley class, so it should be possible to have them appear inline correctly.

If you're logged onto the blog you can see the problem in action here. Otherwise see here.

    I'm all for disabling smiley's altogether. I hate smileys.

I've disabled smileys for now, the default ones look out of place in pretty much any theme of any WP blog ever.

I can't make a CSS fix if someone else decides to turn them back on in future though, since moving to SE I lost the power to edit themes.

shouldn't be an issue though because nobody will turn them back on... right?
