I hope it works out for you...I have to admit, I've gotten the ftp working without much fuss, so I haven't looked at it too much. Did it throw a specific error?

Btw - I hope to have some rudimentary spellchecking via plugins real soon. I'm using a modified version of your EAP! So, be on the lookout, I'm chugging along on this piece.

actually wBloggar works pretty well for me, but I'll give a try to this.

Chris: It's pretty darn cool, except I'm not sure what I have to do to make the picture loaded intot he FTP. If I put a new image and select it from my local machine via the "source" field dialog, it just posts it using that local path.
Anything special that needs to be done?

Aha! That's something I was struggling with before...it's not a trivial task to change from a local version of an image file to one that gets uploaded.

The (temporary) solution is to use the little upload file button on the toolbar (looks like a world with an arrow going into it). This will actually inject an image nearly the same way that w.bloggar handles it.

Sorry about that - the add image dialog is actually an effect of mshtml. I never figured out an elegant way to handle it...maybe I should take it out in favor of the upload file dialog?
