Don’t even try: you will add all kinds of poisonous invisible code tags to your blog that will, over time, completely screw it up. Use Windows Live Writer instead. It’s designed to work much like word, only you can add tags and categories and images and formatting, and it’s web-compatible, the way Word is not.
