when you sanitize a copy from Facebook through the notepad it looks fine:

Alinsky's R4R - Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have. Applied in this case to the size or your movement as well as the % of the people that agree with you. LOL.
... but when you copy paste direct from facebook you get this style:

... oh well, don't do that.


reason being that that the copy from Facebook contains a span element with class="commentBody" but fastblogit has assigned a conflicting style to the commentBody class.  

i'm thinking that we can adapt to this bug as the workaround (sanitize through notepad) is not too tedious .

Incidentally the same applies to drudge, but the details are different.  In general when copying from a different web page the best practice is to past it into notepad first, copy again and then paste into fastblogit ... that is if you care about how things look here.

That applies to things where I don't want to preserve the links and the pictures as well - which I do often.
