I am happy! Just wanted to say a big "Thanks!" to whomever figured that script out. I followed all the instructions, used a file over 2 megs even, and it was slick as a whistle. It took me soemthing like ten minutes too.
Only little things left I may or may not fix:
In the older entries, everywhere I used an apostrophe, it places a "?" in a black diamond.
also, now my "most recent comments" in the sidebar point to old comments, probably the last ones in the import file. I expect that to clear up when I get new comments.
Other than that, WP is AWESOME. The whole thing takes up far less space, possibly half as much, than my MT set-up ever did.
