Here's a link to some handwriting recognition tips:


Although the period is not specifically mentioned, the tip for the  
colon applies:  Don't just 'tap' the period, 'blob' it (i.e. - a  
very, very small 'o').  Don't try to simply write a period alone, or  
'after' a word - it has to be written as 'part' of the flow of the  
last word of the sentence.  You can even emulate an ellipsis this way...

I don't know of a secret 'stroke' to change case of a letter, but you  

1) Double-tap the word;
2) From the displayed panel, tap the icon with the underscored lower- 
case 'a' ;
3) With the segmented word now displayed, tap the letter that you  
want to change.  You will see both the upper and lower case letter to  
choose from.

Far faster to do than to describe or read.  Note that if the first  
character of the word is the one that you want to change, chances are  
that the pick list that appears as a result of step 1 will have the  
change you wish to make.
