How do You Edit Your Documents

I’m working with some outside writers on some projects and having some real issues finding a WYSWIG that works in an HTML programmer free blog world.

Microsoft Word: – The best grammar, and spelling correction around. The worst, no one else is even in it’s universe, as far screwing formating up when converting to HTML. Non existent blog interface compatibility. Local storage and backups pretty much a wash there. Document collaboration pretty much impossible.

Google Documents – Spelling correction is adequate, but no grammar checking. Takes a little getting used to but formatting is really pretty clean when converting to HTML. Single blog interface capability (what I’m only allowed one blog?) Online storage, backups, and accessibility rock, as long as you’re in an always on wifi connected world. The best in the bunch as far as collaboration.

Blog Desk: Spelling correction adequate, again no grammar checking. HTML Formatting is really clean, built in image editing rocks the house! You can connect to as many blogs as you want, interact with categories, and future date publications, again rockin’ the house. Documents stored locally in some bizarre format backups cumbersome and clunky. No collaboration built in, and workarounds clunky and cumbersome.

I like the interface for Google docs and can deal with it’s minor formatting issues, but the one blog restriction, lack of categories, lack of pre-dating, and primitive image editing leaves me feeling like I settled for second best. Blog Desk kicks ass with images and blog interfacing, crappy backups and proprietary formating suck. And let’s be honest I really need a good spelling and grammar checker, so how do you get from word processor to published blog?
