Test post using latest version of MarsEdit

Trying out the Nov 10, 2012 update to MarsEdit (version 3.5.8)

Want to see if it’s gotten any better since my last look at it.
Back in April I looked at version 3.4.4 and was disappointed in the lack of text layout/format capabilities. Giving it a new look today to see if things have gotten any better.
Test one. If this works, this line should be single spaced from the previous and indented slightly.
Test two. If this works, this line should be single spaced from the previous and indented slightly.

Test three; enter a list. This line should be double spaced from the previous. And now a list of stuff:

  1. one
    two
    three
    four

Well… that was unimpressive. Instead of showing the text items above formatted as a list (desired result), the editor is showing me some markup tags wrapped around my text.

Format test number four: make some italicized text.
Format test number five: apply some additional font changes to this line.

Format text number six: insert an image. JunkBoat 540x367

Result six: Instead of showing the image, or even a place holder / outline, the editor shows a quasi URL like HTML tag. Another preview displayed the image in the preview window.

That’s enough for this test… going to try the upload/post now and see what happens.
