I’ve just installed the Movable Type plugin Textile 2 and it’s fantastic. The first one was already great, simplifying entries with quick shortcuts for links, images, lists, quotes, etc.
Textile 2 adds Google, Amazon and IMDB quick link creation, something that I will enjoy tremendously I’m sure. You can now also float images easily, make definition lists and even enter accents without switching to the canadian keyboard. Plus loads of other features. Thank you Brad Choate.
