Enable people to preview contents of Reply and New Topic Tools' summary fields
Open, Needs TriagePublic


This task involves the work of making it possible for people to see a preview of the contents written with the Reply an New Topic Tools' edit summary fields.

In the Reply tool, the wikitext mode shows a preview of my reply, which is handy for spotting bad links and other mistakes before saving. There's no preview for the edit summary, so those errors go unnoticed (and, worse, can't be fixed later)
