As nice as wordpress is, it can sometimes turn your life into a bit of a nightmare. Case in point the title in my previous post. I was trying to tell WP that I want straight double quotes (ie: “) and it kept insisting on beautifying it and turning it into curly double quotes. These curly quotes have a different meaning in Unix, so if you’re using a “cut-and-paste” unix command in your post title you’re kinda out of luck. There is a process called wptexturize that turns simple everyday quotes/doublequotes into what they call smart quotes. Anyways, to work around this you can use the following tables HTML names instead of the actual character when you’re writing your post:

Well maybe a bit too simple. I couldn’t decide if this one was totally evil –under a cutesy name and interface– or just simply useful and cool, so I’ll let you guys decide. Hop on over to Texty and give it a whirl.
The neat part of a service like texty is that you can craft your HTML pages the standard way (maybe through a webbased editor like WriteToMyBlog) and add elements to that page that can be updated and changed by others without disturbing the main content of the page. Again keep in mind that the texty elements will most likely not get indexed by search engines.
“You don’t touch our phone, you just use AJAX and HTML and design webpages that can be loaded (using wireless) on the phone”. Now I have no idea how this qualifies as a Application development platform, but according to Apple it does.
