Separate editor and HTML styles

I think it would be great to have separate styles for the editor and the Preview. I may like to edit in white-on-black, but see the output in black-on-white. I guess this could be done by manually merging two style sheets (right?), but seems like a natural separation that many people would like.

    Thanks for writing in!

    You have a few options:

    1) You can use any CSS you like in the metadata if you want to use different HTML styling in the preview pane on a per-document basis.

    2) As you mention, the style sheets are just basic examples to show off some of the features. The idea is to create your own style sheets that include whatever you like for the editing pane and the HTML pane. You can mix and match, or completely create your own. Choose colors that match, colors that clash, stripes on one side and plaid on the other, the sky's the limit.... ;)

    While I'm not ruling it out forever, at this point I have no current plans to separate the style sheets into two halves (editing and preview).
