On my page I have an instance of the CKeditor. When someone types a letter in the CKEditor I want to run the function makePreviewBody()

I tried it below using some info I found on another site but it's not working. Could someone take a look at my code and show me how I can make the function makePreviewBody() run with the onKeyUp event attached to the CKEditor?

In theory this is what I want, but this doesn't work:

  <textarea class="ckeditor" cols="30" id="editor1" name="editor1" rows="10" onKeyUp="makePreviewBody();" >Enter the body text of your ad here.</textarea>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function CKEditor_OnComplete( editorInstance ) {
    if (document.all) {      
    // IE
        editorInstance.EditorDocument.attachEvent("onkeyup", makePreviewBody) ;
    } else {
       // other browser
       editorInstance.EditorDocument.addEventListener( 'keyup', makePreviewBody, true ) ;
    }   
}
    </script>
    
    <!-- create title preview -->
<script type="text/javascript">
    function makePreview(divId,txtField){
    document.getElementById( divId ).innerHTML=document.enrAd[txtField].value;
    }
</script>
    <!-- end create title preview -->
    
        <!-- create body preview -->
<script type="text/javascript">
    function makePreviewBody(){
    document.getElementById('preview_body').innerHTML=CKEDITOR.instances.editor1.getData();
    }
</script>
    <!-- end create body preview -->
    
<script type="text/javascript">
// Save for future reference
    //function GetContents(){
        // Get the editor instance that we want to interact with.
        //var oEditor = CKEDITOR.instances.editor1 ;
