Windows Live Writer (Beta)

I thought I’d give Windows Live Writer a shot. It aims to be a WYSIWIG blog post editor. It supports photo upload, but only via an API that the version of WordPress I use doesn’t support and FTP. Dreamhost obviously supports FTP but I don’t want to use cleartext passwords.

The HTML it generates seems to be pretty reasonable. I’m in the habit of typing two spaces after a period and Windows Live Writer turns that into non-breaking spaces which is sort of unfortunate.
