michael -

i use blogger and it has a feature that prevents a page re-load without a confirm. Even if an Ajax script executes, or something inadvertant happens to the browser, the software will not allow the page to be reloaded without a browser warning window popping up - so i guess this is some type of autosave or caching system that at least in my view addresses the problem...

Some of the offline Blog Editors are good enough that you really don't need to re-format after posting.
Blogjet, Qumana, Ecto .. just to name a few.

But I know you're a fan of moving off the desktop, and onto the Net... so the "well-kept secret" is: Writely. Powerful online editor, auto-save every 10 seconds(?), version control, collaboration, and direct posting to your blog.

Thanks Zoli, I do have a Writely account, but haven't used them a lot...will have to try them for blogging.

Also, Mark, it's good that blogger has something that prevents a page re-load...often the problem is not the blogging web-site, but a browser crash. So an auto-saving feature would still be useful in the web-app.

Thanks again for the feedback.

I was pleasantly surprised to notice gmail saving drafts every minute or so the other day... and I have shared the same frustration in blogging too (although it is actually much worse for me since I don't post as much as you :).
