Testing Windows Live Writer

This is a test post (testing Windows Live Writer at the behest of Paul Kedrosky).

Testing Norwegian characters: æøå ÆØÅ

Testing special characters: {[]} $#&%"@

Incidentally, Windows Live Writer (an off-line Blog editor) is a pretty nifty product: Standards-based, simple to use. One especially useful feature is that it fixes a persistent problem with AJAX-based editors: That the text entered since the last save disappears if you happen to refresh the page or commit any other fumble-fingered unfortunality. Of course, off-line blogging is also useful in itself, for those long plane rides, but if I only needed that, I could just use Evernote, which stores text in a format where links and simple formatting makes it over into Movable Type’s AJAX-based editor screen.
