I saved (with the author's permission) the posts from a TypePad blog before he deleted it. I used the File>Save Page As operation in Firefox. My intention has been to recreate an online archive of posts and comments, preferably with the cross-links adjusted to go to the archive, but I'll settle for having the text available.
However, when I tried to Import into WordPress.com the .html files I had saved, of course these had not been created by Exporting, so it didn't work. Is there a way to convert the files I have into an importable format? I'm reasonably comfortable working with raw HTML.
