What You See Is What You Get
You're going to love this -- and if you live north of the equator, your going to hate me for waiting until now. Thanks to some urging from my Catalan friend, Dolors Permanyer, I've done a little research and I found an open source code script that will help us use a more graphical user interface in your blog writing. Another term for it is WYSIWYG -- or What You See Is What You Get. This means that you'll have an option of getting a more word processor way of writing blog entries using Class Blogmeister. See here:
And here's how it works. The next time you go to write or edit a blog article, you will see, just above where you normally set the text size, the following text:
[Text] / Graphical (wysiwyg)
Notice brackets around "Text." This means that you are currently in text mode. If you click "Graphical," the page will reload into the graphical mode, with the brackets appearing around that word.
If you run into problems, then just switch back to the text mode, and I'll fix the problem when I get back from North Dakota.
I've hesitated doing this, because making this much use of Java (and probably some Ajax) runs into browser compatibility issues. I'm hoping things have gotten to the point where this is not so much of a problem.
Good luck to you all!
