I can see why.
The LJ how to for this is not very friendly. Neither is the actual button in the posting page. So I thought I would see if I can simplify this procedure.
You can actually enter the code in a post yourself.
Most of the posting clients (semagic, x-journal, MacJournal, etc) for LJ will recognize at least some HTML code, which is what this really is.
You will probably have to flip over to the HTML tab in the actual LJ posting page but it is still pretty simple.
So give it a shot and let me know what you think...
