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).
