Problems with Blogger -- Grrrrrrrrrr. . .

Blogger is giving me trouble lately when I try to paste in my entries on the recent painting that I have drafted in MS Word. Since this is how I've always done things, these recent developments are somewhat vexing to say the least. . . *&!%#$!*

Stokes,

Try using a word processor called Jarte and see what happens. It is based on WordPad but is free and creates less gobbledy-gook in the HTML code than Word and so might paste easier.

Hmmmm, I wonder if using a simpler text editor might be the solution. I believe that MS Word and other fancy word processors imbed a lot of 'control characters'. These don't appear on the screen . . . but they are there.

Personally I always compose right in Blogger . . . and I haven't had problems.

I compose right in blogger and never have any problems.

Blogger is hugely sensitive to oddities in the HTML. And Word is hugely prone to creating really strange HTML code to make things look like the layout. Could be a collision of those two facts.

Hiya Stokes - I'd agree with the other w.r.t a plain text editor.

If I'm doing a big post I use a free HTML editor called HTML-Kit as that allows me to do the text formatting... I got it from here:

http://www.htmlkit.com/

Once I've finished I then cut/paste the source text direct from HTML-Kit into the HTML Blogger posting screen...

Stokes, I mainly compose in blogger, but for a longer post I'd weep for if lost, I work oin Word but sace the text as either an rtf or txt document.
