Blog Publishing from Word

I wasn’t aware I could publish directly from Office/Word. Pretty cool. I’m going to test some things. I happen to be using Office 2010, but I’m pretty sure the functionality is similar in Office 07.


How about colors?

How about gradient colors?

(Edit: Looks like gradient colors don’t work)

Bold text.

Italicized text.





(Edit: It looks like it screws up the formatting if the fonts are too big)

Line Breaks:

(Edit: I guess they do not publish. On a side note it is still nearly impossible to remove a line break in Office 2010. Disappointing…)

  1. Number lists
  2. Second
    1. More
      1. More

(Edit: It should read 2. a. i. (not 2. 1. 1.). Numbered lists have limited functionality)

  • Bullet lists
    • Cool
      • More
        • More
  • Second
    • More
    • More
    • More
  • Third
  • More


3D Plots:


Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4
Row 2
Row 3
Row 4
Row 5

(Edit: The table is “expanded” vertically compared to the original version. I guess this would be a good time to try the screenshot functionality)



(Edit: Mmm pretty)


(Edit: Well, it looks like equations won’t publish. Frick!)

How about right justification?

How about center justification?

Highlighted text

(Edit: Okay, it doesn’t look THAT awful)

How about different fonts? (Engravers MT)

Not bad, not bad. The limitations could be due to the functionality of my WordPress theme.
