28 02 2010

Ok, so maybe I did a post like this before with a less than stellar result. At least it was better than my new solutions where I paste images and raw black text into the posts. Hopefully, those days will now be gone. I’ve been digging around the WordPress resource section and realized that you can do quite a lot of things very easily. Pasting code seems like one of them.

I’d love input on the site so please comment if you see something you’d do differently.

With Silverlight 4, we saw the introduction of the RichTextBox control. Before using the RichTextBox I had been stacking multiple TextBlock controls on top of each other to create “richness” in my text.
