 if(strx.indexOf("<")!=-1)
 {
  var s = strx.split("<"); 
  for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++){ 
   if(s[i].indexOf(">")!=-1){ 
    s[i] = s[i].substring(s[i].indexOf(">")+1,s[i].length); 
   } 
  } 
  strx =  s.join(""); 
 }
 chop = (chop < strx.length-1) ? chop : strx.length-2; 
 while(strx.charAt(chop-1)!=' ' && strx.indexOf(' ',chop)!=-1) chop++; 
 strx = strx.substring(0,chop-1); 
 return strx+'...'; 
}

function createSummaryAndThumb(pID){
 var div = document.getElementById(pID);
 var imgtag = "";
 var img = div.getElementsByTagName("img");
 var summ = summary_noimg;
 if(img.length>=1) { 
  imgtag = '<span style="float:left; padding:0px 10px 5px 0px;"><img src="'+img[0].src+'" width="'+img_thumb_width+'px" height="'+img_thumb_height+'px"/></span>';
  summ = summary_img;

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<div expr:id='"summary" + data:post.id'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'>createSummaryAndThumb("summary<data:post.id/>");</script>
</b:if>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'><data:post.body/></b:if>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "static_page"'><data:post.body/></b:if>

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<div style='float:right;margin-right:10px;margin-top:5px;'>
