Let's see how this works. I've been spewing over on my OPML blog for awhile today, and going to try pasting some excerpts here.
As I play more with the OPML Editor, I wonder if I might not be able to mash it up with my WordPress installation for more spontaneous editing of daily asides. The wordpress.root tool isn't quite working for me, but I have a few ideas for alternatives or fixes.
It's been awhile since I seriously an outliner for blogging, if I ever really did. I can see how it biases toward quick blogging and spew. And that's a good thing.
I do wish that the OPML Editor had some modernized font handling on OS X, though, so my Georgia font looked anti-aliased in the outliner. But alas, I don't know the first thing about getting that hacked into this tool.
Next, looking for the glossary table, so I can author my own things like... ";->" Oh, yeah, there it is:
Also, I've started keeping the OPML Editor open instead of Tinderbox. And, while I don't get the richer visualization tools that Tinderbox offers, I do get a ton of nigh frictionless network connectivity via upstreaming and outline publishing. So, I lose maps but I gain sharing.
On the down side, there's a ton of tinkerable code under the hood that I keep having to herd myself away from to get anything done on what I'm supposed to be accomplishing. But, that's just a tinkerer's occupation hazard.
Let's see, what else? I'm wishing for my del.icio.us bookmarks as an OPML outline now, so I have a palette from which to draw in composing little asides here. I wonder if it'd be nasty to pipe some del.icio.us bookmarks into a Glossary? I tried playing with some XSLT found by way of Danny Ayers, with some tweaks of my own, but I think it's producing OPML that gives the editor some indigestion. (Danny's original XSLT seems to work, though.)
