The fix to collisions is to display a checkbox
[  ] Disable smiles
below the Post Message box if this feature is switched on. Make smiles above a hyperlink to the table of smiles, so that the user knows he can use them, and what to type.

I'm personally more concerned that this package parameter is left OFF by default :-). Sites that use smiles, especially animated ones, tend to have a different flavor of discussion - less informative and perhaps more social, attracting casual users who sometimes make posts consisting of smiles alone.
