          Take a look at Autohotkey*. While it actually does a LOT of different
          things it applies in this case by letting you define universal text
          shortcuts that get replaced when you type them. So, for instance, I've
          actually got the signature at the end of this email set up so that any
          time I type:

          ;;sig

          the signature gets injected. It happens anywhere on the machine. Just
          make sure you define them so that you couldn't accidentally type them. I
          just use the double semi-colon before every abbreviation and haven't had
          it replace anything I didn't want it to.

          You can do basic text or more elaborate stuff as well as to launch
          programs with keystrokes. I've got WINKEY+C mapped to launch the Windows
          calculator and WINKEY+S launches a new command shell, etc.

          It's nice and lightweight as well as really powerful, but easy to get
          started with. Let me know if you need a hand getting it up and running.

            Two tips:
            1. I had problems with the new version 4 beta. It seemed to slow the
            computer down a bit, and also sometimes made my caps lock not work.

            But the version 3.1.6 for Windows
            http://www.phraseexpress.com/download.htm

            works great and didn't slow the system down at all.

            2. Define your auto key shortcuts with a forward slash and then two
            letters. That way (unless you're a programmer who would type something
            like that in a normal day), you won't get the fills by accident.

            This program also has a goofy utility that tells you how much "money"
            it's saving you...you enter your typing speed and how much you make an
            hour, and at the end of the day it gives you a dollars saved amount.

                Not a recommendation, just a suggestion. When I was still studying
                Medical Transcription, there were several programs that were suggested
                for, basically, macros. You type two or three characters and get words or
                paragraphs you've previously associated there with. E.G., this free
                program, quoting from their help file:

                <quote>

                Speed Typing is a unique word processing utility that can do miracles. For
                example you can write a long letter by entering only one word. How is it
                possible? Simple. You can place over 100 000 letters, standard phrases,
                signatures, email addresses, frequently used sentences, URLs, phone
                numbers, and hieroglyphs in the Speed Typing┬┤s database; when needed, you
                can recall any information from the database just by typing a keyword in
                any place where it is possible to type words. This amazing program will
                work with any text editor.

                Examples:
                We enter: hwd
                We get: Have a wonderful day!

                We entered one word only, but got 3 words typed!

                </quote>

                It appears the website for same is http://www.colorpilot.com I think
                there was a better/more popular option, but danged if I can remember it.
