Blogger editor has broken - no more posts until resolved

23 Feb - upgraded to IE 8, all now seems to work.  More posts in the pipeline, sorry for the interruption in service.

However the comments box still works. There is a javascript problem that may be connected with my browser.

What version of IE are you running, Ed? I can edit posts using IE8 on our Windows7 laptop. I think I read somewhere that there are big changes afoot in the HTML world which would not be compatible with older browsers. Microsoft are up to IE version 9 now.

I have several machines, one of which is running IE6 and that is the one with the problems. It is clearly a browser incompatibility problem, but it's irritating all the same.

According to this website IE6 usage in the West is down at the sub 2% level, and it seems likely that the major providers of blogging software will give up on it soon. Wordpress already has. I think your best bet is to upgrade to a newer IE or Firefox rather than move blogging hosts. I'm afraid the internet standards don't stay still for long :-(

Yes I have just upgraded to IE8

Chrome is quite fast and is built to engage closely with Google (surprise). However it doesn't support hot keys very well, so need the mouse much more.
