If any of you have tried to ink enable web applicaitons you will know that it has historically been far from easy. Basically you had to build a custom control into your page, which meant that users had to have you in their trusted sites group to use the control (with default settings). This might be OK on the intranet, but it made Internet Ink just too hard.
At Mix '07 Microsoft announced the Siverlight (nee WPFe) beta 1 and in the announcement they pointed out that Siverlight has ink support. How cool is that?
Gavin Gear has put up a great series of posts on the subject that you really should check out if you want to build ink enable web apps. These include:
