I think functionalities of normal and preview modes of composer is very similar.
Then why do exist separately? I think it is possible to merge both modes in one
single mode. Am I rigth?

Imran, they are not exactly the same. Normal mode shows some hints for helping
the editing of the page (for instance, anchor <a name=""> makes such a hint to
appear). Those hints occupy some space, thus affecting the visual formatting a
little bit. So, the two modes aren't exactly identical. Also see MS Frontpage
which uses similar modes. Marking bug as invalid.
