When I write my message, if I use lines that are too long and will be broken up in an ugly way when
they will be posted, I'd like to be able to see it when I hit Preview. However, when I hit Preview,
it looks fine - but then still is wrapped badly when posted. I think the problem is that the
Preview window is wider than the actual post window. This should probably be fixed so that
the windows are the same size and WYSIWYG.

For instance - when I previewed this very message, the paragraph above showed up as nice
neat 5 lines. But when posted it looks like an ugly 7 with the words "when" and "Preview" on
a line by themselves.

Of course, this probably won't be a problem for me once I realize that I should just not put in manual line breaks and keep typing. Then, the wrapping will look good in both modes. But I still think that Preview should match :).

Note: The other problem I guess is that the fonts used for editing and showing are different, so
it looks fine in edit mode, but not in post mode.
