I have MS Word 1997 and the main reason why I want to use it is because of the additional formatting options - especially for photos in my blog. I find that writing within WordPress gives few options for formatting.
I trialled using the paste from Word option but it doesn't work for images in my Word document so that isn't any help.
I have tried following the instructions above and on the link that you posted, justjennifer, for writing the blog within MS Word. The problem is that when I go to register my blog with Word I keep getting a message that says it can't register my account, even though all my details are accurate. Any ideas?
