    How do others compose long(ish) articles? I'm an inveterate previewer but doing that "live" involves lots of commits which feels expensive both in terms of bandwidth and database (since the system saves every single one of them).

    I guess we could ask Jacques for a "preview" feature on instiki, but that doesn't get round the bandwidth problem.

    Any ideas?

    The system actually doesn't seem to permanently save multiple edits by the same person within a given time frame (like an hour or so), it just overwrites them. So there's only the bandwidth problem, and I don't know how significant that is.

    I generally try to avoid previewing much, but I haven't written any very long articles. A preview feature in instiki would definitely be nice, but if it would be a lot of work it might not be worth it.

    Alternately, we could in theory run local versions of instiki on our own machines, so that we could "compile" it locally and see what it looks like without using up bandwidth.
