View/Edit #87!emote

File name: emote
Syntax:
    <TT>emote &lt;anything&gt; ...</TT>
    <TT>:&lt;anything&gt; ...</TT>
    <TT>::&lt;anything&gt; ...</TT>

Announces <TT>&lt;anything&gt;</TT> to everyone in the same room, prepending your name.  This is commonly used to express various non-verbal forms of communication.  In fact, it is so commonly used that there's a special abbreviation for it: any command-line beginning with ':' is treated as an 'emote' command.

The alternate form, '::' (less commonly 'emote :'), does not insert the space between the player name and the text.

Examples:
Munchkin types this:
  <TT>:wishes he were much taller...</TT>
Everyone in the same room sees this:
  <TT>Munchkin wishes he were much taller...</TT>

Munchkin types this:
  <TT>::'s eyes are green.</TT>
Everyone in the same room sees this:
  <TT>Munchkin's eyes are green.</TT>
