what type of programming causes : and ) to turn into :) after pressing send?
Most Helpful Guy
there's probably code in the backend when you press "Send It!" that checks if you have something that looks like [space]:)[space] with a regular expression, then replaces it with some kind of placeholder so that when the site generates the HTML page (you call this URL www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q1805783-random-question-for-computer-possibly-programing-savvy-people for example and the server sends the response to your browser), the generated HTML replaces said placeholder with a span that contains the image instead of the placeholder.
So that span contains the emoji and the image from images.girlsaskguys.com/.../1f60a.png3
