I use that command. The file is saved in the current directory  
instead of some temp location so that included Stylesheets and Images  
can be referenced using a relative path. If we can make the Preview  
smart enough then we don't really need that command anymore, I guess.

I'll give it some thoughts.

That would mean to alter the MultiMarkdown Script or at least the  
XSLT used. I wouldn't want to touch/alter this as we then cannot  
easily update it. Maybe we can inject the Stylesheet in the generated  
XHTML document. But that also gives a different output from what  
plain MultiMarkdown produces, so I'm not sure about it.
