    I know that MUIRP is on it's way but as I understand from
    the press release only Spanish will be additionaly
    supported for handwriting recognition.
    Does anybody know when other languages will be available
    (like Dutch)?
    To me it doesn't seem all that much work. You would only
    need to change the dictionary in which the recognition
    software searches to make a match. (Hey Bill, you can even
    just copy the the dictionaries from Office Proofing
    Tools :) ).

    The MUIRP will enable ". . . users to switch UI settings using existing
    Tablet PC-supported languages (English, French, German, Korean, Simplified
    Chinese, and Traditional Chinese) and a host of additional languages,
    including Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese,
    and Swedish," according to the announcement by Microsoft, Bart.

    Not "all that much work"? Only hundreds of thousands of samples of writing
    of every word in each of the languages is not all that much work? LOL!
    English and the present Ink recognition engines took years to complete -
    each. :cool:
