How to test a link before posting?

Hi all, I've seen links that do not work or they go to something other than intended. bremner being a recent example and I have also done it before. I can copy and paste a URL into the reply box but it does not become a link until I have posted it by which time it is too late to correct. Is there a way of checking first that it is what is intended.

As simple as that well.....

When you type your reply the link appears in the preview box below, just hover you mouse on it or click it before you post the reply.

wiz-king, I don't get a preview box most of the time, I don't have one now nor the options for bold etc that used to show.

Too much ad blocking!

Using FF with Adblock Plus. Removed some other add ons that had appeared from somewhere, now working, thanks.
