  • There are a few ways you could approach this:

    1. Ugly JavaScript to hack the existing Notes control in an unsupported fashion; not recommended
    2. You could replace the Notes area with a custom interface of your choosing (Silverlight, HTML5, etc); tedious, but absolute control over appearance

    If you choose the former, I recommend using the Developer Tools in Internet Explorer to dissect the HTML and DOM to find the way to hook into the page the way you need to.  If you choose the later, as I hope, Silverlight can make for a very rapid development environment and give you .Net library access to SDK methods and classes.
