[wp-hackers] Let's whip WYSIWYG

That's a good thought.  FYI, I have a Drafts view and a Private view within 
my admin 'control panel' in the sidebar.  So I can actually preview posts 
within my site's 'framework' in either status mode.  Good when I'm writing 
10 page reviews, which a wysiwig editor still isn't going to preview for me 
properly. ;)

Also, someone mentioned that filters can change the text.  Yes, remember 
that.  Remember all the cool plugins that modify the content -- lord knows I 
have a few!  And in many cases, I have my plugins only set up hooks when not 
under the admin pages -- not sure if others do that as well, but if the 
editor is going to start previewing the_content, I'd want to adjust my 
plugins accordingly. :)
