Sharepoint Portal server-collaboration: Feature request-Reviser role-preview items-Readonly mode
Need the possibility to create a user group with access to view pages before publishing, but not allowed to edit them. This is for our intranet site where we have people responsible for content but not the actual publishers of the content (theyare content reviewer/approvers and do not know how to use SharePoint to publish).

This feature is different from having readers with access to draft versions since we don't want all readers but only selected users to have access to drafts. These authorized readers should see draft versions with a preview option and not with standard behavior which is navigating to the page and see the last version (these case in draft.) Ex: they navigate to the page and only see the major version (just like today), but a preview option is enable to those users and when they click they see the last draft version.
