No, there's not really a way to do this, unless we put in place
don't have the capabilities we need.
The hard part is getting something to appear in a different window.
Normally one gets information in a different window by using
the target= attribute of a link tag (<a target=... >). However,
in the case of preview, we're submitting a form, and I don't know
how to get the results of a form submission to appear in a different
window, and leave the current window intact.
Essentially we have to either open a new window, and then have that
window submit the form data and display the results, or we have to
submit the form data and display the results in a new window
(presumably leaving the existing window intact). I know this
support to make it work and I'm not familiar enough with form

The default Site.EditForm page now comes with the (:input e_savedraft:)
button built-in. If you (or the skin) has customized Site.EditForm,
then you'll have to add it to see it. :-)
