Broken Blog Update

The Blogger people got back to me a day or two after my last Broken Blog post. This time the answer was a bit more helpful. Turns out the feed was breaking because of strange tags that were showing up in the XML. Okay, I already knew that. How did these tags appear?

Turns out it was all Microsoft's fault. As you may have picked up, I'm a pretty bad speller. So a few times I've typed my post out in Word so I can catch any obvious mistakes and then paste it into the blogspot post window.

Bad idea.

Because Word is the wonderful product it is, it inserts tags around anything it feels like - places, dates, people, whatever. When I copy and paste, these tags come along for the ride. Most of them seem to work in XML, but every now and again there's one that doesn't. Hence the broken feed.

So, no more copying and pasting from Word.

Oh, and as Gordon said, why doesn't the Blogspot spellchecker know the word "Blog"?
