Are we  missing the point here? I use preview for CSS more than 
anything, as it requires constant tweaking and viewing. I need to 
instantly see the result of a tiny change in an inline or block style 
without having to save.

If this can be accomplished AND be able to easily switch rendering 
engines (in Web Preview GUI), then I imagine we'll see a lot more web 
developers (esp. CSS people) converting to TM. And that means profits 
for the TM team.

That's why I'd like to see the Web Preview development "catch-up"
