The feature will be accessible from Word 2007's File/Publish menu, and will support direct posting of blog entries in Beta 2 to Microsoft's MSN Spaces and SharePoint 2007, Google's Blogger.com, and Community Server, a collaboration platform Microsoft uses for its own MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network) blogs.
According to Joe Friend, a lead program manager on the Word development team, the blog post tool automatically encodes styles such as boldface into HTML, and after some setup, will auto-upload any images added to the blog.
