I would like to use Google Wave to draft blog posts, but it unfortunately redirects my URLs. What is the quickest way to get the content into my clipboard with the URL redirection removed?

As far as I know, it only appends, "http://www.google.com/url?sa=D&Q=" to the beginning of each url. I suppose I can paste it into Text Edit, save as HTML, and then use find and replace, but are there any other alternatives?

Perhaps the easiest solution would be to embed Wave into your blog.

If you use Wordpress, you can simply install the following plugin "Embed Wave"

Now, if you want to embed a new Wave on your blog, enter this piece of HTML code

[wave id="enter-wave-id-here"]

Interesting alternative, but I don't want to embed my posts as waves –  Casebash Jul 1 '10 at 11:58
I know, but I couldn't find a proper robot that would export the Wave yet –  Ivo Flipse Jul 1 '10 at 15:22

Unfortunately, the export tools don't remove the Google rubbish. However, I suppose you can just download the HTML and use a regular expression.
