Smileys are good. At this point Amazon is embracing KF8 which is exactly the same amount of styleable format since it really is ePub source and ePub capabilities but Amazon doesn't want to shoot the goose that laid the golden egg when they have cornered a large share of the market so they retained the compiled idea from Mobipocket and just modernized it by going from OEB to EPub source. Just think of it as compiled ePub with KindleGen as the compiler and everything will be fine.
