Blogger Spacing Issue Acknowleged

When "Beta" Blogger, later known as New Blogger 2006, was first rolled out, there were many new features, and improvements over "Old" Blogger, noted. There was also one feature, that was not seen as an improvement, noted.

When you include any indenting block of text in your blog post,
<blockquote> ... </blockquote>
<ol> ... </ol>
<ul> ... </ul>

for instance, the spacing of the posts, below the indenting block, would change. This makes the entire blog look sloppy.

Several workarounds were identified by various bloggers; not any one was simultaneously clean, effective, and simple, however.

After repeated complaints and reports, Blogger finally acknowledged the problem. Yet, it's still not fixed.

Blogger calls it "Cosmetic". We call it sloppy.

A blogger spacing issue I have been complaining about for a couple of years is that the Preview screen does not take into account the blog's settings wrt to line feeds. It puts a blank line in for every blank line in the html. So although I have set it to only put line feeds in where my html tells it to, the preview double spaces paragraph breaks and layout around pictures, making it rather useless as a preview.

I use the Preview screen for previewing text only. Anything else I publish, proof read after publishing, and correct as necessary. You can't really preview formatting, as that will vary according to browser. All formatting nuances you'll only see after you publish.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
