Thanks to all who contacted me with suggestions here or privately.

I have updated the recipe to enable a custom warning message, or to disable 
it, also the prompt boxes should not appear on pressing Preview or Cancel. 
On a prompt box, pressing Cancel should no longer submit the form, pressing OK 
should submit it, even with empty author/summary.

It is difficult for me to extensively test this on Windows, so feedback for 
any problems (all browsers) will be welcome.

The not-saved-warning is known not to work in Opera 9.63 and in Konqueror 3.5 
(and other versions of these browsers), not much can be done. The prompt 
boxes should always work.
