I mostly write in BBEdit with HTML.
Sometimes I copy to Drafts so I can continue working on it on my iPad. So I wind up with a Frankendoc that’s partly Markdwn and partly HTML that eventually must output to Blogger, which requires HTML.
There’s never any fancy HTML. This is pretty much it:
<b>,<I>,<br>,<blockquote>, <a href=""> and </a>
I can think of two solutions.
Translate the HTML to markdown first thing once I open it in Drafts. Then translate it back to HTML for transfer to Blogger. Problem: I’m not always perfectly efficient, so I’ll still wind up with Frankendocs sometimes
Go ahead and work on the frankendoc in Drafts/Markdown, then run a markdown->HTML script and hope it doesn’t munge any of the preexisting HTML tags.
Are there other solutions that don’t require me to be perfectly consistent on my end?
