Since XML-RPC wraps your content with XML, any XML characters
(especially <) has to be escaped.

Complicating this is the fact that (right now) weblogger.el thinks your
content is pure HTML.  Which means that if you're writing content that
contains HTML characters that should be treated as source code, then
you should write them in an escaped fashion.

Wrapping content in CDATA might help here, but it won't solve the
problem completely.

In the end, weblogger.el needs to have some understanding of your
content.  It needs to know if you are intending to write pure HTML or if
you're expecting the server to format the code.

This is definitely worth doing, but I can't do it right now.  Could you
file a bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/weblogger-el requesting this
