Interesting difficulties with Blogger

This is the first time I've had problems with Blogger and the only real downside was that I disappeared off the UUpdates aggregator. So if you haven't seen me here recently, that's the reason. It turns out that sometimes if one cuts and pastes from a Word document, Blogger has a meltdown---or something. Anyhow, UUpdates freaks (not John's fault) and you have to wait till a post cycle (20+ posts) completes before you're back on UUpdates. Bummer!

So this is a test message to see if deleting the offending post will speed things up.

You should have "Works" bundled into your windows- I use that instead of "Word", and Blogger has no beef with Works.

Looks good. For the curious it's the Microsoft "junk" that they insert which causes the issue.

I have Word for Mac, Joel, and I'm not sure I have the Works feature. It all happened when I copied a Word doc (which I do all the time and paste in without difficulty) but for some reason couldn't paste it. So I pasted it into a rtf. doc and moved it into a different Word doc. and then it took. Goddess knows why this all happened---it hadn't happened before.

Sorry to bombard with comments, but if you want to try posting it again then I am fairly certain the "clean" version I sent you would not cause the same issues that the RTF document caused. Blogger should be happy with it as well.

I will think about it, John, but I posted it on Facebook yesterday and don't feel the need right now.
