Remove Extra Line after Smiley Faces in WordPress

So I noticed in one of the wordpress blogs I am working on that while the emoticon (smiley faces) I was using were properly being converted into images, they all had an extra line spacing after all of them. Needless to say this was quite annoying and screwed up the paragraphs in my posts. Getting rid of the extra spacing around the smiles was quite easy once I knew the correct search terms (display emoticon inline). After a bit of digging and fooling around with the styles in chromes Developer Tools I figured out my smiles were inheriting the “display: block” from another class. To solve the problem I included the following line into the style sheets and all the extra spacing was removed.

img.wp-smiley {display: inline;}
