When you push preview your edit summary could also be parsed and previewed, like
the page text, and displayed below the edit summary box in a little box.
Edit summaries do not support complex markup, therefore a preview feature is
I disagree, if you were to use an incorrect inter-wiki link in the summary (as I
have doine several times) the link is not displayed at all and sometimes
mistakes can only be seen in rendered text.
It's hardly the end of the world.
It's also hardly the end of the world if you get some markup wrong in article
text. At least that can be edited after you've saved. Since it's not a big
deal if this isn't implemented, it's an enhancement, not a bug, but this *is*
the place to request minor improvements as well as major. I've sometimes wanted
this, certainly, particularly when I wasn't sure whether some particular bit of
markup was supported in summaries and wanted to know before I saved.

Screenshot of an ugly implementation
Well, a difficulty has arisen: where exactly should the preview be put? I'm
not sure where it should go so as not to look ugly. Because I rather think
this positioning looks ugly.
Put it somewhere near the bottom, just under the summary box.
