1. Every time someone edits their post, it shows up as a separate post on bloglines. This happens even if the reader hasn't seen any of the previous edits. The amusing side of this is that I've learned who the biggest self-editors are (hellloooo John Hoge! ;) )

2. In Oscar's recent post in the spelling bee thread, he used the word "Teremín", with the accent on the i. On bloglines, this appeared as "Terem�#x0022; (lack of closing quote intentional).

Me too! I'm a hopeless self-editor. Comes from being a pernickety stickler for spelling and suchlike. Heck, I've been known to correct punctuation in postings that are months old.

Oddly enough, it doesn't bother me in other people's postings. (Although I have to say I prefer to [i]read[/i] posts than to [i]decipher[/i] them.)

Really? Well I guess I *do* have a Wiki world view. I'm always in revising draft mode.
I love that the posts are living but don't trigger the "new post" flag after edits.

Darn, now someone will know that I've come back in and changed this line about my "Terem�#x0022;

Cool- thanks for the bug reports. I'll be sure to fix this in TW 2.0 :)

I'll post an update on progress on the new site soon.
