I’ve been messing around with mt.el (an emac mode for blog editing MovableType blogs) but currently it’s not working out just right. It appears that posting works, but when it retrieves the postings all the open angle brackets are converted to <. It appears that movable type is sending the postings back with converted like that and the xml.el or xml-rpc.el that I’m using aren’t in synch with that behavior.
I have been getting some nice help from the author of mt.el though.
Now I’m playing with ecto. It doesn’t like the unusual characters that appear in some of my postings. Those are a gift of Microsoft Word. Ecto’s editor is surprisingly simple.
Ecto is a little easier for setting up pictures than the vanilla MovableType web interface though.
