( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Recently i pulled out a snippet i use often and posted it in the Snippets Section. Unfortunately, when i was almost finished writing i noticed there was no preview button. Suddenly i felt in dire straits.

If there was a club for abusers of the preview button, i would be the honorary captain. i've filled netscape's history cache with links to the same page, modified slightly between every iteration of preview. It is nice to be able to beautify my posts (as much as possible given my limitations) before i send them to the monestary.

Please god, let there be a preview button in the Snippets Section for us lowly monks that have poor formatting and writing skills (that we may beautify the post so those who are above us do not snuff it).

PS i only previewed this one about 8 times...

    [perldigious]: Snowshoeing time stevieb? I need to buy a pair so I can walk my German Shepherd properly through the country.
    [stevieb]: yeah, I snowshoe a fair amount in the mountains. I also use spikes similar to these very often as well
    [perldigious]: Discipulus: alternate link
    [stevieb]: LOL you can easily replace "Helsinki" with "Alberta"
    [perldigious]: I used to live at the top of a very steep hill stevieb, I can relate to the video. Literally used to have to build up momentum and try to force my vehicle to make it up the hill to park in my driveway properly... didn't always make it.
    [choroba]: Why don't they use tire chains?
    [perldigious]: First snow, probably not prepared right away choroba.
    [stevieb]: it's Quebec... they do weird stuff there :) In the mountains, it is *mandatory* for trucks to use tire chains. Many passenger vehicles do as well (but it's not mandatory for them)
    [perldigious]: That stuff can hit fast... like what we just got where I'm at. Saw a few people who had slid OUT of the roundabout I have to drive through to get to work, not used to the ice yet, take awhile to get the hang of it again and make vehicle adjustments.
    [stevieb]: man, when the roads are glare ice, I don't even bother going to work or out... unless I absolutely have to, or was already out in the first place
