Moving Away from Word Based Blogs

The Old

Well after much work with trying to get nice looking code from Word by copying and pasting, even with the steps mentioned in my previous blog, I’m headed to other methods. Word creates bloated xHTML that is quite messy, it works, impressively well, but creates blog entries that are just way too large. I can’t validate my RSS feed because just the few early posts I made are over the 200k limit of the feed validator mentioned below.

The New

So I’m going to trying a new approach till I can find a way to create elegantly colored syntax with an acceptable amount of overhead. If anyone has some suggestions, please let me know! In the mean time, I won’t use syntax coloring..

  1. Thanks for the quick reply! Wow, someone out there actualy reads my posts. I’ll be more careful when posting temp blog entries when testing my custom MetaBlogAPI interface between w:bloggar and the site.

    Actipro Software makes great products! I’ve used their docking windows and wizard controls for about two years now. I wasn’t aware of the highlighting control. I will definately check it out.

    Thanks again!
