        Smart tags are a powerful new feature in Microsoft Word 2002, Microsoft Excel 2002, and Microsoft Outlook® 2002 (when Word is enabled as the e-mail editor). With this feature, developers can create custom solutions to label specific text with relevant contextual actions. For example, a developer might wish to tag alphanumeric strings corresponding to product codes with the ability to look up inventory or sales information on that particular product.

        Many solutions, such as this example, do not require access to the full capability of the smart tag interface. To address this, Microsoft Office Smart Tag Lists (MOSTL) allow developers to create simple smart tags which recognize text strings and allow the user to open associated websites in the browser window. These smart tags are built by creating a simple Extensible Markup Language (XML) text file.
