“InkML supports a complete and accurate representation of digital ink. For instance, in addition to the pen position over time, InkML allows recording of information about transducer device characteristics and detailed dynamic behavior to support applications such as handwriting recognition and authentication. For example, there is support for recording additional channels such as pen tilt, or pen tip force (often referred to as pressure in manufacturers’ documentation).
InkML provides means for extension. By virtue of being an XML-based language, users may easily add application-specific information to ink files to suit the needs of the application at hand.”
With SVG for drawing and InkML for markup, we will have some interesting components to build handwritten applications.
