Rich-text blogging on the iPad

Prior to the most recent update to WordPress 3.3, I never had access to the rich-text editor when blogging on the iPad. Quite to my surprise this morning, when I went to write that last post, I discovered that the rich-text editor in WordPress now works on the iPad. This is a very big deal for me because I make a good deal of use of some plug-ins that use the rich-text editor and don’t work as well with the straight HTML editor. (They work, but I have to remember a bunch of complicated coding, which I don’t want to bother with.)

In any case, I don’t recall seeing this listed as a feature in 3.3, but I am very glad to have it.
