Ivan, That is a great addition to this very handy tool. It's always good
for a comment preview (etc) to show exactly what it will like like upon
submission. However, I did notice that when the preview is switched to
'HTML Output' or 'Syntax Guide', upon returning to 'Preview' the
highlighting is lost. Just a FYI.
