Suggestion: adding a preview function BEFORE posting KudoZ answers and/or forum items.

I have been participating in some newspaper fora on the web and found this function very useful. Before you post your comment, you can see it as it would be actually displayed on the screen making appropriate corrections if necessary.

I often get aware of the mistakes I made when posting a KudoZ answer or a forum comment only after I hit the "send" button and see the text in all its beauty. So I add an "errata corrige" by inserting a note (KudoZ) or I use the edit button (fora). It's a bit annoying since a lot of mistakes, in my opinion, could be avoided by simply offering a preview mode. WYSIWYG

An on-line spell checker for non-native English speakers would help too when posting to the English fora.

For forum posts, a preview would be the most important improvement I can currently think of.

As far as I know, the preview is already there for KudoZ questions.

I'm a native English speaker and it would help me too, particularly in KudoZ answers, where I often make typing errors.
