Blogger Tool First Post

This is my first post using the Blogger Word Blogging tool.  It is pretty cool, pretty easy to use.  I would like to know If I have any control of the HTML that is created.  Only because the AJAX tool that I use only outputs HTML.  It will be interesting to see what people can do with it.  At least I have a decent spell checker!

One thing I have noticed is that if you put a smiley icon in the text it only comes out as a “(“.

Edit: apostrophes don’t come out very well either.Edit: Images and tables aren’t supported either.  Gutted.

I think I will post a blog tomorrow with the features that I would like to see.

Edit:  It is really fast at publishing the post too.  I mean I find that it is really really fast.

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
