Blogging in Word

I just found out the hard way why you shouldn’t use Microsoft Word to create blog entries.  When you copy and paste from Word it adds in extra html that you don’t need in the background.  I had been blogging in Word for the past couple of weeks until I realized that the posts created in Word were the wrong font.  The only way to fix it was to go back in html view and remove all of the extra html tags that weren’t supposed to be there in the first place.

There is a more in depth article about the problems that blogging using Word creates on Content Robot.  I would prefer to create my blog posts in word though.  Luckily I can look forward to that in the next version, Word 2007, which will include the ability to create “clean html” blog posts according to Joe Friend, a Microsoft Office Project Manager.
