Well, actually it is like this... There is an edit icon on clicking of which
a page opens where comments can be entered/edited. When the user has to just
see it and not really edit it, is it advisable to give another icon on
clicking of which a page opens only for "viewing" and not for editing ??
Not only in this context but for many admin sections as well, such as a
profile page, where data can be entered/edited and also if the user wishes
to only see them and not really edit them, is it advisable to give two
different links - one for view and another for edit???
I am of the view that a single page for edit should do for both..... i.e.
the edit page itself should be used in case the user wants only to view....
