The interface surface contains information relating to the computer software and coded data indicative of a drawing field. When placed in an operative position relative to the interface surface, the sensing device senses indicating data indicative of the drawing field and generates movement data indicative of the sensing device's movement relative to the interface surface.
The indicating and movement data are received in the computer system from the sensing device. The drawing field is identified and then the computer software is operated at least partly in reliance on the movement data, and in accordance with instructions associated with the drawing field.

59. The system of claim 58, wherein the motion sensing elements include one or more rollerballs mounted for rotation within a constraining housing disposed substantially within the sensing device.
60. The system of claim 59, wherein components of rotation of the rollerball, due to movement of the sensing device when used on the surface, are periodically measured.
61. The system of claim 60, wherein the components of rotation of the rollerball due to movement of the sensing device by the user when used on the surface are measured by means of:
rollers disposed within the constraining housing for rotation, the rollers being configured to be driven by contact with the rotating rollerball: or optical sensing of rotation of the rollerball with respect to the constraining housing.
62. the system of any one of clams 34 to 61, wherein the coded data is indicative of a plurality of positions in or associated with drawing field.
63. The system of any one of claims 34 to 61, wherein the coded data includes a plurality of tags, each of which includes tag data.
64. The system of claim 63, wherein the computer system is configured to derive the relative position of at least one tag using at least some of the tag data of the at least one tag.
65. The system of claim 64, wherein the relative position is defined in relation to one of the following group: a plurality of other tags, the surface, the drawing field, and a zone associated with the drawing field.
66. The system of any one of claims 62 to 65, where the computer system is configured to derive an identity of the drawing field using at least some of the tag data of at least one tag.
67. The system of claim 66, wherein the data from which the identity of the drawing field is derived is the same in all the tags of the same drawing field.
68. The system of claim 49 or any one of claims 50 to 67 when dependent on claim 49 wherein the sensing device includes a marking nib.
69. The system of claim 49 or any one of claims 50 to 68 when dependent on claim 49 wherein the sensing device contains identity information which imparts a unique identity to the sensing device.
70. The system of claim 69 when dependent on claim 46, wherein the identity data includes the identity of the sensing device.
