I'm working on making a XHTML1.1 blog which by definition is strict. All of my blog entries have embedded xhtml tags which are balanced. When I have a long post that I close with any other tag then ; for instance a: </cite> or </table>, somewhere embedded in the logic a dangling paragraph closing tag gets added to the resulting output document. Since I check my postings to assure that the site remains valid with the w3c validator, It would be very helpful not to have this added help. In addition, I attempted to foil this behavior by trying use_balanceTags in both states to no effect.
Other than that, I am very happy with .72; All the other blogging tools I reviewed where either too much goofing around (MovableType) or just wierd. Keep up the good work.
