HP Smart Web Printing

HP goes web 2.0, buys Tabblo - GigaOM describes the HP purchase of Tabblo

Tabblo have a web print toolbox that HP are using as part of their Print2.0 initiative. It provides print layout functions and connectity to various HP web sites. The toolbox requires web site designers or web framework providers to add additional attributes to HTML tags and provides some javascript that converts this enriched HTML to and XML layout language and sends the XML to some websites for conversion to print ready PDF. The conversion sites will be examined in future posts.

Smarthouse is a randomly selected HP web page that shows how Print 2.0 is being marketed to end-users.

Does anyone know how much HP paid?

How does HP intend to make money from this service?
