There is a program called MacroExpress (www.wintools.com) that allows a
form of abbreviation expansion called Shortkeys. You define sequences of
keys to replace words, expressions, or even commands.  MacroExpress
monitors input from the keyboard, and when it "sees" one of the sequences,
bang, the code is deleted and replaced with the word or expression. 

The UI of MacroExpress was recently redesigned. During a cursory look
yesterday, I could not find the Shortkey feature. I assume its there, but
