A couple of pragmatic questions.
On my browser (Firefox 3.6), the formatting is fine. Are there any weirdnesses on any other browsers that anyone sees? Please let me know if this is the case.
Second, because I have to control the HTML to get exactly the effect that I want, I find that I cannot view the post before publishing it. Viewing the post tends to insert formatting tags that interfere with the display aspects that I want to control. Therefore, I have to publish the post to view it. Unfortunately, if I don't have the post exactly right, that means that I have to repost it several times to get it right.
For you followers out there, does that meant that you receive multiple notifications of each post? If this is the case, at least you know what is going on.
If so, I apologize. I think that I should have most of the required formats down pat so that I could get a new post up without having to republish it. Something to look forward to!
