Recently, I saw a nicely formatted question and wanted to see how it was generated, meaning I want to see the "syntax".
But the Edit Button is Disabled and the popup text says "editing not allowed on non-wiki questions". I do not want to edit, I only want to see the formatting.
I feel this can be enhanced for usability: Make the edit button always enabled. When clicked on a non-wiki question, simply pop-up a comment "Edits can not be saved". If user had wanted to edit, he will say "cancel" and go away. If user wanted to see the syntax, he will say "ok continue" so now show him the text box with the raw syntax.
