There should be a preview button, but should also be a quick preview
This is actually something I've started working on recently as a mod to 3.0.10 to include in a style that I'm building, but not as a button per se, as a tab link

Something like this:

Previewing the message:

Used the livepreview mod code as base, but that is something that keeps refreshing all the time. This way it should only need to refresh after we click on the tab.

BTW I marked this as merged since it has been, and I moved it into the 3.1 forum.

As for your preview idea, IMO it should be one or the other. If yours is implemented, it will be a simple click with not refresh needed. Does your preview update "live" or does it wait for the "preview" tab to be pressed? Also, does it use its own javascript bbcode parser or does it use ajax calls to the phpBB one?
