Again, frustration with things google, i.e. docs.google

NB: HTML here-under copied/pasted from docs.google's edit page

This is being created in docs.google (here is the publically-viewable original ) and, perhaps, if I'm lucky, published to my main blospot.com blog.

(Since this is going to be in my blog, shouldn't there be a way of indicating a title? [the first few words of text are adopted as the post title])

Take 3 ... the "publish to blog" test showed no faults, but Publish had no effect [even though I specified the target blog using its 7-digit ID, Publish went to the first in the list rather than that one] ... so here we go again.

Take 5? Nawww ... I've got better things to do.
But how typical of things google: the Publish function is about 80% done, so they cut their costs and move on to more flashy things. My point: entering the blog ID failed; it went to the first blog in my list. Entering the blog name failed; it seems it wasn't published at all. Entering both, using the same format as the prompt/hint failed in the same way.

And here's my point: why isn't this integrated with blogger.com?! If I select to publish there (apparently I have the option of sending to other platforms, LJ for example) then why can't I be provided with a list of blogs? Those are under the same login data / authorization / permissions as what I'm doing here.
Frustrating.

And if I want to publish this elsewhere by using IFrame I need to dig around to find my key.

Sorry, but no ... no thanks. Spent too much time on this already.
