Is the format of these scribble strings described anywhere?

Thank you again,

Scribble tag is based on the jot format, which was proposed as part of HTML
3.0 and then left out when people figured out it's hard to sign a desktop
monitor. Jot is a vector based format so it tracks not only direction but
stroke speed. It's hard to find info about it, but here is the basic spec:

http://hwr.nici.kun.nl/unipen/jot.html

Remember that scribble is base64 encoded from the device, so once you decode
it at the server you are left with raw jot.

post saying you had one, but I never saw a refference on how
to get it.

Thanks.
