Description

The preview at the bottom of the single-edit view saves a lot of time, and occasionally we want to show HTML pages too, but serving non-HTTPS content other than PDF files is annoying. In particular URLs like http://www.persee.fr/docAsPDF/rebyz_0766-5598_1986_num_44_1_2194.pdf nowadays mostly show a CAPTCHA warning like:
