Over on the Tablet PC Questions web site, it was pointed out that I did not give much detail when I recently mentioned I can post to my blog with inked content, etc. from my Tablet PC with no software other than Outlook and the blog software. Valid point.

<Handwritten content>

No keyboard is needed either. Unfortunately sometimes (see above), magical handwriting spellcheck would be nice. All of the text’s recognized from my mediocre handwriting. And that’s about all there is to it. Minor formatting changes can be made on the web application if necessary, after the item has been posted.

One thing I need to figure out is the why and how of getting what appears to be a single line feed in Outlook to carry over to the web entry. If I hit Return twice in Outlook, it puts one blank line between paragraphs. But on the website it ends up being four blank lines. Minor details. At any rate, this entry was just made entirely without the aid of a keyboard, for what its worth.

By the way, the Microsoft Snipping tool power toy for the Tablet PC, which I used to quickly grab the above portion of a screen in the dasBlog setup for mail posting, is super cool. If you have a tablet and have not tried it, you're really missing something.
