The new blogspot post tool

Is very annoying and keeps messing up the formatting whether I use Compose or HTML mode.

Are you pasting your content into the box (maybe composed in a word processor)? Just wondering.

I usually write in Open/Libre Office and then post the text into the HTML window and then format it, but it doesn't seem to make much difference if I copy/paste into a text editor first.

Likewise I can get things looking fine as I'm previewing/posting them, but then they are wrong when they appear.

Ah, I see, yes Jenny had the same issue when posting to Italian Film Review earlier this week and this is why I asked. When she posted it was all over the place and when I looked at the post there were references to MS formatting everywhere.

If you post plain text then it is fine, in fact the new editor is much simpler with italics and bold etc rendered with more basic tags tnan before and no span tags or style attributes.

I tend to write straight into the post form so don't really face this issue, but if I were to do so now I would probably suggest NOTEPAD.

I hate the new 'updated' shit.

Updated = Blogs only show up in my reading list 50% of the time.
