    Define a protocol where different types of content are described. Have emotion be one of the content types.

    A protocol would define every record sent between any two sites.
    The first field in the record would give the type of record being sent.
    Following the the type field would be the data for that type of record.
    Say the type field was a single character:
    E for emotion
    T for text of the message
    Records would end with the newline character: \n

    Sample communications could be:
    EHappy\n
    THow are you doing?\n
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
