VisualEditor: Add a Preview feature to show actual version of page (minus slugs, etc.)
OpenPublic

Description

VisualEditor has some deliberate/non-buggy differences in its display, compared to what readers will see on a saved page, such as the addition of blank lines/slugs to make adding new items at the top of a page. These differences sometimes confuse users.

Add a preview button so that users can see the final version, rather than the slightly different VisualEditor version.

Suggestion from SarahTehCat: Use the 'Live Preview' system (if it's stable).

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
