Just a test of sorts

I've been thinking that I'd like to have an editor where I could create and edit entries off-line (because I have dial-up) and then publish later. But I want to see what they'll look like for real. It's a pain to copy, past, and correct a Word doc. So this is a test of one editor. I'll take suggestions on any others out there that you all know about, but I have to tell you that until I'm working again I can only do free.

Harvey has blogged about this editor in the past - there is a free version (no ads or anything). I downloaded it and was going to use it, but I'm too darned lazy. You can do html tags too. So, if this isn't the one you're testing - go check it out. *grin*

Well I looked at the editor, but it's looking like waaaay too much work at the moment. *grin*

Simpler the better - WordPad is perfect for me (Text Editor when on a Mac). I actually have a WordPad file that already has several dozens of link-code lines ready. I just plunk in the URLs, add text, paste into Blogger and publish. If I want to keep the file of the post, I paste it into a new file. The pre-linked file I close without saving changes.

coturnix - Thank you for the input. After mucking about with a number of editors, I'm thinking that the K.I.S.S. rule applies to this problem. Creating a file of links and html code I use regularly certainly seems easier than what I've been doing.

NoteTab Light (the free editor Teresa mentioned) allows you to insert html code with a double-click off a VERY extensive menu. You can also re-arrange the menu items. I've moved my ten favorites to the top of the list and I never even need to touch the scrollbar on the menu anymore.

Seriously, it doesn't get any more convenient.

Harvey - I downloaded NoteTab Light the other day. Probably because I had a migraine, it looked way too complicated. I'll see when I'm doing another mathy post if it helps.
