in reply to 'show as entered' option for poorly formatted posts.

How is this an improvement over the "preview" button? If it's just to see the raw HTML, then you already have a nice little text box to view it. People who don't use code tags will probably continue to not use code tags. In fact, wrapped in a <pre> makes it worse, since the code was likely formatted correctly before it went into HTML, and now it looks correct inside the <pre>.

: () { :|:& };:

Note: All code is untested, unless otherwise stated

    This is not a replacement for preview, but rather a way for other people to read the post. ie, this function is not for the author but for others who wish to be able to read the post before it is fixed.
