- You can't choose when the post will be published (i.e. to schedule a post for tomorrow or other specific date)
- You can't control the settings when you insert an image.
- You can't assign metadata when you publish.
- A Word numbered list doesn't translate, all numbers revert to 1 and have to be reformatted.
I realize that all the different blog providers have varying settings, so going with the lowest common denominator makes sense for Microsoft. For folks who mostly publish text and don't do a lot with images or categories, it's a great tool. Still, if you want the higher level of control that TypePad (or other blog service) provides, the Word publish-to-blog feature isn't that valuable.
