Comment (by siobhan):

 I'd like to keep it to four or five shortcodes, however the shortcode name
 should not be a colour, it should be what it's used for.

 The problem with using a colour is that then we need an additional
 reference to tell people what the shortcode is for, and it's too easy for
 people to think "hey, I just want a pretty colour so I'll use this box."

 Let's stick with
 [info] - additional information, more information, more advanced
 [tip] - a tip that doesn't quite fit in with the body of the text but that
 is useful for people to know
 [warning] - a red box with stuff that should be avoided or definitely done
 [alert] - something that we need to alert the reader to - that the page is
 a draft or needs updated or whatever.
