What Are Smart Tags

Since smart tags are new to Office XP, let us begin with a brief description of their purpose. To illustrate the concept of a smart tag, imagine that you type a date, such as January 1, 2002, in Word XP (with smart tags turned on). The smart tag system recognizes the text "January 1, 2002" as a date and underlines it with a dotted line. If you then place the mouse over the date, a small button that looks like an "i" with a circle around it (a smart tag action button) appears. Clicking on this button drops down a list of actions, as shown in Figure 22-1.
