Scripting News in Manila: Winer on smart tag technology

Scripting News in Manila: Winer on smart tag technology: "Two years ago today, issues around Microsoft's (now defunct) Smart Tags in MSIE exposed key questions about integrity in web-writing"

Actually, smart tag technology is significantly expanded in Office 2003, and there's a new smart document feature as well. Winer and Walt Mossberg quite effectively (and spuriously) stigmatized smart tag technology two years ago, but it is definitely not defunct. To be more precise: yes smart tag technology was yanked from IE in 2001 due to the controversy Winer referenced, but it is still a big part of Office XP and a bigger part of Office 2003.
