Blogging on the Tablet

I got my blogging front end – built on Front Page – moved over to my new tablet. I wrote at least part of this entry in ink. I was surprised to discover that Office 2003 does not include the Office Web Services Toolkit functionality, so I had to install that separately. While I was at it, I downloaded the VS.NET Tools for Office. I was thinking of writing a C# based blogging front end that used Word instead of Front Page or InfoPath since only Word supports the Text Services Framework. This means that if the tablet mis-recognizes your handwriting, you can choose alternative recognition options instead of deleting and rewriting the word. For pen based input (with my crappy handwriting) this is a huge time saver.
