I have recently discovered javaranch, and registered.(if this wasn't obvious)
I was just wondering if it is possible to add a button called "preview" where you can check how your message looks like with quotes, URLs and all that before you actually submit it.
I am aware that I can always edit the message, but that is more useful if I want to change the contents, besides it makes other ppl. wonder what did I say earlier that I probably want to change. For simple UBB/HTML corrections and typos a preview feature will come in handy.
Just a thought.
Regards,
- Manish

JavaRanch uses UBB software that it licenses from InfoPop. If you would like an enhancement to the underlying software you need to put in an enhancement request with them.

OK.
I was not aware of this (like I said, I am still a greenhorn here).
Thanks,
