I'm currently using the code

function emotion_news(em) {

<a onClick="emotion_news(' :evil: ')" style="cursor: pointer;"><img src="images/emotions/evil.gif" border=0 alt=":evil:"></a>

So far it works flawlessly, the only problem is that it ALWAYS inserts ANY bbcode I have it use at the bottom of the document. I was wondering if anyone knew how to make it insert it wherever your insertion point may be in the document.

I don't care about wraping tags where you can select text and have tags placed on both sides, I just want the one piece of bbcode placed on the insertion point instead of at the end of the text area.

If anyone can help me out, thanks  ;D

Find the insertion point in a TEXTAREA is complicated, and varies between browsers.  I'm pretty sure I've seen a thread to this effect on this board not too far back.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
