Faces and Nunber Format Not Available on MS Outlook 2007

I have installed recently the MS Outlook 2007 on Windows 7, but I noticed that when I type  
:)   I don't get the smiley face any more.

Secondly, if I type  23rd   it does not change the format of the date, I mean It does not change the letters  "rd"  to small on top of the number  (I hope this is clear)..

What should I do to get these back ?

Thank You ..

Actually, it is already set to HTML format.

However, this was not the cause, I just found the options that I should turn on;
Tools --> Options --> Mail Format tab --> Editor Options --> Proofing --> AutoCorrect Options -->

1) to get the smiles back or as a replacement to what you type do the follwoing"
- Go to AutoCorrect  tab --> Check "Replace text as you type"

2) Replace the (1st) (2nd) with superscript do the following;
- Go to  AutoFormat  tab --> Check "Ordinals (1st) with superscript"

You have probably accidentally adjusted the message format to something other then HTML.

Here is an article of how to adjust this...
