No more garbage posts

Ok, I've modified my encrypted blog text code so that it no longer shows the encrypted text until you click the link. It took longer than I expected b/c I wanted to do it in a way that the scrambled text also didn't show up in RSS readers, which generally ignore such things as css style tags, eg. "display: none".

What I ended up doing was just using the encrypted text as an argument into the javascript function and just using innerHTML to display the encrypted text. Then I came across problems with some of the readers and aggregators that didn't like line breaks in the middle of a javascript function call in a hyperlink, so I had to do more hacking. The one last thing that would be nice would be to be able to decrypt multiple blocks simultaneously, eg. I can write about how much I can't stand *** and how much *** annoys me, and then when you decrypt, it fills in the *'s :)

Anyways, it should be working now and now I don't have to be concerned about how much I blog privately b/c the scrambled text doesn't show anymore and my blog doesn't look like crap.
