Testing Writely Posting To Movable Type

Jul 11, 2006
Category Technology

Jim and I are using Writely to collaborate on our Board of Directors series. I had some character interpretation problems between Writely and Movable Type – they were similar to problems that I had posting from Flock a few weeks ago. Basically, ampersand based HTML codes come across fine in the HTML, but get interpreted / built incorrectly by MT. Thanks to the magic of Google, I found the problem and a potential solution in about 18 seconds. This is a test, to see if the problem is fixed. The following apostrophes should look correct: “This is a test’s of the apostrophe’s warning system’s.” The grammar should not be correct.

Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how to get the title or category “right in Writely.” Maybe tomorrow.
