   RE: [xml-dev] Tablet PC ink is XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

We regularly receive requests for systems 
that use handwriting devices to fill in 
forms, particularly ones that gather 
narratives (eg, case descriptions, victim 
statements, etc).  Wrapping that in 
XML format has advantages.  I don't 
know anything about the TabletPC and most 
of these kinds of things I've seen have 
been awkward or error-prone.  Still given 
what we see here in RFPs, there could be some 
industrial market.  I'm not too sure about 
the home market.

So it encloses all your handwriting in pointy brackets? Ingenious.
