When entering extension comment, there is no description of the comment format,
no help link, no preview, and the format is _not_ plain text.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to an extension page
2. try to enter a comment
3. try to guess how it will look when posted

Actual Results:  
there are no clues about the formatting on the page

Expected Results:  
format decription, help link, and a preview button
This does sound like a good idea. However, please bear in mind that we are just
about to begin development on Mozilla Update v2.0 and all development on the
current version is being basically kept to essential security issues only.

We need to add some text on the review submit form to let users know that no HTML or BBCode is allowed. Text only.

Actually, after thinking about this more - I think we've done a good job with the new submit form @ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/reviews/add/436 & the review guidelines @ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/pages/review_guide. The detailed guidelines explain about the formatting to not use, etc...

What's missing at the moment is an optional review preview button & form, so I'm retitling this bug to be that - pushing out from current milestone.

Basil, I think this is a good idea. This way people can see for themselves that html links and such won't show up as they expect.

We don't support any formatting in general reviews and if someone adds some and submits it they can always edit their comment to remove it.  ->wontfix
