Here is a patch to node.module that adds a $node->preview flag which
themes can use to display previews appropriately. This seems like the
simplest possible core change to support styled previews.
For more information, screen shots, and a working demo using an updated
FriendsLight theme, see:
I am submitting a similar patch to comment.module.

Function theme('node', $node, $teaser, $page) can't detect a preview and
therefore often renders it incorrectly. The problem is that !$page is
usually interpreted as "the node is part of a listing" in the themes
and therefore the previewed page may look, depending on the theme, very
different on the actual page.
Perhaps theme() should get somewhat more detailed context info than
just $page?
