Well, I've put smileys in, though I usually turn them right way 'round.  And
when I was a professional proofreader, I'd occasionally use a curly underline
(in proofreading for publishing, this indicates the text should be boldface).

But the worst is the Pilot-influenced handwriting things... doing "v"s backwards
or not putting a crossbar in an "A", for instance.

I must admit I have written ":-)" (yes, sideways like that) in handwritten notes
to people ... and probably used abbreviations such as BTW, FWIW, etc.  Oh the

But I do still tend to underline for emphasis, rather than drawing asterisks ...
