I second this. I typed in a long one and it was a real drag that I missed the folder name so I had to backspace everything and re-enter everything just because of one teensy mistake.

Any other functional way to fix the user's task is fine. For example, "wordwheel" it. Like when you type in the initial characters, the computer puts up the list of known good RSS sites with those initial characters. This might be a 90% solution, and the user doesn't have to leave the couch. Users that go to the trouble of typing in the whole thing basically do it as a community service and then no one else has to do it.

A 5% solution (but maybe easy from an implementation perspective would be to add IR codes for all letters. Best would be compatibility with common low cost IR keyboards, but even if they are just wierd easter egg type key combinations, it would be simple to write IR applications for IR enabled PDA's. Maybe you have that mode sitting around and can sort of leave it undocumented, but let it leak out for us 5% folks and see where it goes.

Although this sort of thing would be 5% for the US, it would address CCWF's suggestion about how to do Asian market glyph input for TGC customers.
