Version 1

Perhaps the most common way to make a cross-eyed emoticon is using the percentage character followed by a hyphen followed by a closed parenthesis. A variation on this emoticon is to eliminate the hyphen, which eliminates the nose on your emoticon's face.

Version 2

Use a capital "X" followed by a hyphen and then a closed parenthesis to create this second variation of a cross-eyed emoticon. Using a capital "H" in this sequence will also result in a cross-eyed emoticon. Remember, do not put any spaces between characters when creating emoticons.

Version 3

Finally, you can create a cross-eyed emoticon by using the greater-than symbol followed by a period and ending with a less-than symbol. The greater-than and less-than characters are ">" and "<" on the keyboard.
