Nice Movable Type hacks

Scott Andrew is a guy that always has lots of interesting knowledge to share about Flash, XML, JavaScript, DHTML etc. And he is also using Movable Type for his weblog. I just discovered that he has put together a few Movable Type hacks, very nice :-)

I just installed the «Search Link Shortcuts» which adds buttons to easily add links to Google search, dictionary search and Amazon search, so now you all know the reason for those kind of links poping up in the time to come :-)
