Grrr! on Blogger

Grrr! on Blogger

What IS it with Blogger, anyway, that sometimes my lines wrap before they're halfway across the screen, and sometimes they march right off the right-hand side of the screen?

It's not my browser (Opera), for it happens with that scourge of the digital realm, Internet Explorer, too.

When that happens, I have to either back up and retype the entire paragraph or cut it, paste it into a word processor or text editor program, cut it from there, and paste it back into Blogger.

I suspect extraneous characters are finding their way into my paragraphs, but I can't image how or why and I certainly don't know how to get rid of them.

Ideas, anyone?

The ultimate way to find out what's going on is to look at the HTML; did the "WYSIWYG" interface shove in an extra DIV or SPAN somehow? There's a tab you can click on to see and edit the HTML that will be used for your blog entry; I use it to insert HTML character entities for characters with diacritical marks and to clean up before I finally commit the post.

Too much trouble. Blogger should work.

WYSIWYG is broken in Blogger; I've gone to making blog entries strictly in HTML. Not only does my text not go haywire, but I can position larger pictures much more easily by cutting and pasting their code than by trying to move a picture that is larger than the tiny window they give you to edit in.
