While making a post with an image, the image flickers in and out of the preview while I type

This video demonstrates what I'm talking about

I assume the flickering is caused by this sequence of events:

  1. User keypresses in the WMD editor
  2. There's an event bound to the keypress event that takes the WMD input, converts it to HTML, and replaces the existing HTML of #wmd-preview with the new HTML
  3. The browser takes a split-second to re-display the image
