As Ed surfaced in chat, conversations  about what the most useful workflow  for previewing a reply composed in wikitext have been going on for some time.
The design, thus far , has the preview "replacing" a contributor's text input.
This task is about exploring what an approach might look like where a contributor is able to view their text input and a preview of how their text input will be rendered on the page side-by-side.
- [ ] Mockup showing what it would be like for contributors to be able to view their text input and a preview of how that text input would be rendered on the page when published
- [ ] Mockups to both approaches are posted on wiki for contributor input

2. Does the preview "overtake" the text input area? Is the preview presented in a way such that the content a contributor has composed and the preview of said text are viewable simultaneously?
