Turning off all formatting (5 posts)

    I've read the documentation thoroughly (I think)...but can't find a way to do this, if it's possible.
    I want to be able to enter some posts without any "smart" formatting, that is by entering a post with my own (X)HTML tags, and not having any extra tags automatically inserted. Is there a way of enabling this? I have already turned off quicktags, htmltrans and closetags.

    I was going to ask this same question, but then saw maki's post.
    There needs to be a checkbox, like pMachine has, where you can enable autoformatting and refuse it. Perhaps the default option should still be "on", but a lot of times I am pasting valid HTML in there from the editor, and it's a pain to remove all the extra code for formatting.

    Yes, Movable Type has the same option of turning off autoformatting.
    Since I'm planning to use this for a blog about (among other things) CSS and valid markup, it's sort of not quite the thing, not to mention annoying if the autoformatting makes my markup invalid :P I can even live with no formatting at all for all posts if I can turn it off...

    Submit the cases where the autoformating messes up your formatting or validation, because that would be a bug that needs to be fixed. I write about code all the time and it works great.

    allusion, here are two test pages. (the blog part of this site isn't live, so please excuse the dust)
    http://createwebmagic.com/wp/index.php?p=6 - entered, or rather copypasted from text editor with line breaks between the tagged elements. All line breaks get interpreted as
    http://createwebmagic.com/wp/index.php?p=7 - same content but with the line breaks between the tagged elements removed. (sort of a pain to edit...though I guess I could live with that. As you can see since I would like to present examples inline instead of on a separate popup page or something as much as possible, I really need the ability to enter straight XHTML.) For some reason, it still inserts a stray at the very end, which makes the page not validate.
