Google Scribe is an Auto text completion tool which was launched in Google Labs an year ago. Google has recently added this feature to the Post Editor in its Draft version. Google Scribe helps you write more efficiently by auto completing words and phrases as you type. Google Scribe supports Arabic, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish and the language is automatically detected using the text in the post.

  5. Hi, I thought I'd better let you know in case you didn't already that there seems to be a problem with your Blogger gadget named "Recent Posts Advanced". The error I'm seeing is...

    "org.apache.shindig.common.xml.XmlException: The element type "meta" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "". At: (1,54)"

    [note: I had to insert a space after "</" above to get it to post here, there isn't a space in the error message.]

    There is an example at the top of my blog ( see right hand bar under "Miniatures Gallery - last 6 posts" (page down a bit)

    Thanks guys,

  6. Another awesome feature.....!!!!!!!!!
