Posting a message - formatting issues

Would it be possible to adjust the field where you type a message to the actual size as it will appear?
This would also be good for the “Preview” function, I waste a lot of time on formatting (line and paragraph brakes).

I don’t think this is “possible” for two reasons:

  1. We don’t know how wide everyone’s browser window is. Although the most popular screen resolution is 800x600 (I think), I don’t believe it is a majority

  2. We don’t know what browser people use, so standardizing formatting is problematic (and always will be). I suspected it is overwhelming Internet Explorer, but I’ve been surprised at how many Mac users there are here (browser = Safari?) – Macusers can identify themselves at the F/X Shops

What kind of line breaks do you want to do?
