XP Tablet Edition & Word 2k3 anyone?

    Hi, all! Got an odd problem with Word 2003 (Office Pro 2k3) running under XP Tablet Edition 2005 Version 2002 SP2 (Gateway E295C tablet). For some bizarre reason, the input panel (handwriting recog) doesn't insert text into Word documents. It works perfectly in Outlook, OneNote, Excel, notepad, etc, but I just can't get the bloody thing to work in Word 2k3!

    I've done the usual MS KB & Google searches, none of which resolved any solid answers. Also tried to make sure the recommended settings/apps were installed per MS KB articles ("Handwriting" feature as Alternate User Input, "Text Settings" applet in control panel, etc), but a number of the things mentioned just plain don't exist on these new tablets. (Side note: three brand new tablets, all do the same thing (or don't, as the case may be), irrespective of patch, application, or hotfixes installed.)

    Anyone have any direct experience with XP Tablet Edition and Word 2k3? It looks like a problem with that combination just begging for a hotfix, but can't find anything.

    On a side note, we have a couple of these same tablets with regular XP/Pro installed (not the Tablet PC version) with tablet features and drivers installed that work fine (sans buttons) with all applications including Word 2k3, so...

    Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!

    Haven't been able to get Word 2k3 to work, so I uninstalled Office 2k3 Pro and installed Office XP Pro. Same problem: input panel won't insert text into Word XP, but works perfectly with every other app.

    Anyone? :)
