'Preview' only works once?

I'm more of a "first draft" kinda guy anyway.

are you referring to the fact that the code for "live preview" isn't on the post_comment_preview.mefi page?

I use preview and sometimes will see a needed edit. I've found that sometimes a second preview will revert my text to its state at the first preview. (I'm using Firefox 1.0.4) I haven't found a consistent reason.

Hm. If the URL stays exactly the same, preview after preview, and the problem is inconsistent, it could be some kind of caching. Perhaps a URL argument could be incremented by one each preview to prevent?

One shot at immortal glory. Don't waste it.
