Explorer Versus Mozilla

I have been, until this point, composing all my entries on my Mozilla browser. Joe arrived home tonight and asked me why I had weird html text all over my blog.

I told him there was no such thing. I pulled up Mozilla and pointed to my error-free blog.

He shrugged. "I dunno, it looked pretty messed up while I was at work."

I began to grow suspicious. I clicked on my rarely used Internet Explorer icon and I began to feel an impending sense of dread. I entered my blog's URL and there, sure enough, was weird html text infecting many of my posts. Some were fine, some weren't, and there seemed to be no rhyme or reason connecting the affected versus the non-affected.

I still don't get it so, if anyone does, I'd love some input. I hate Explorer and already am finding it really annoying inputting my blog with it versus the ease of composing, adding pictures and posting my blog with my Mozilla browser.

Anyway, it should all be fixed now (fingers and toes crossed) and I really hope whatever glitch exists within Mozilla creating weird errors when composed within its browser yet viewed with Explorer get fixed soon.

At least Joe can go to blogs at work. Verboten and blocked out where I am. I don't blame Mozilla but Blogger's buggy WYSIYG interface. Often when I change fonts or things it causes HTML errors because the uncompleted HTML codes are left behind.

We have a very primative "bolcking scheme" at work. When you go to a site that the firm thinks will eat up too much bandwith (i.e. radio stations etc.) you get a screen that basically says, "do you really want to do this?" You click yes and move on. I am sure is it all logged some where and I'll get yell at at some point. Blogs do not generate the same stern warning.
