Not really, although thanks for the suggestion. I'm not going to install
KDE4 until it's stable and absolutely guaranteed not to hose my KDE3

It does look nice, though.

I ended up using OOo Writer -- just clicking on the drop-down to change
font brings up a usable preview window. Not perfect, but a whole lot better
than anything else I could come up with.
