New Create Entries beta, round two

The next code push will update the new Create Entries page in beta with a number of fixes for previously-reported bugs and enhancements. To make it easier to keep track, we're therefore opening up a new bug-reporting post (to avoid confusing things with bugs reported in the previous post).

When reporting bugs, please include:

* The browser name, browser version number, and operating system you're using
* The steps you took to reproduce the problem
* Whether or not you've tested the same steps in another browser (and if so, which)
* Whether you get the same result every time you try the same steps, or if it only happens sometimes

If we can't reproduce the problem under the same browser and operating system, we may also ask you for a list of any browser extensions you have installed.

Things that are still not yet implemented:

* the "don't autoformat" button
* the rich text editor
* editing existing entries (it will display the old form)
* draft posts of any type, including autosaving of entries

There are also still some issues with IE, especially in "privacy mode". Anything that requires Javascript is currently not working in IE in privacy mode, and we're trying to figure out if there's something we can do to fix that or if the settings of the browser override anything we can do.

Firefox 8.0.1, Windows 7 Starter. Using Tropo Purple. All DW betas are turned on.

I have two "post entry" buttons on the Update2.0 page, one in the previous place (a purple bar at the bottom of the page) and one in the new place with the preview/spell check button.

Also, OMG OMG you moved the preview button THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Ah. This is non-intuitive for me, but something I could get used to. I have my modules carefully arranged so that they don't go lower than the horizontal border of the update box (sidebar only, no bottom modules), and so I have two buttons VERY visible. For a minute I couldn't decide which one to push. (I'm still a little leery about pushing one. *eyes it*)
