I have lots to say, but have been unable to say it--blogger is not working suddenly with my OS X version. They don't know what the problem is. I don't know what the problem is. I'm now back to running System 9 and it looks like this will actually work. That doesn't answer the question of why it won't work on OS X.
...Ooops, I get an error ("required field must not be left blank") in Netscape. So now I'm trying IE 5.0 on sys 9. I don't get all of the buttons, but it looks like I've got a "publish post" button. If this works (or not) then I'm off to try another person's computer with OS X to see whether it works *there*. Ta.
