Comment (by kevinwhoffman):

 @DrewAPicture Great stuff. I agree moving the preview under the editor
 makes sense. I also like how some notes set the stage for the editing
 process, but I actually think all of the notes with the exception of the
 GFDL notice should be before the editor because they impact the subject
 matter and manner in which the note is written.

 For example, the first bullet point under Submission Notes ("Please do not
 use this form for...") could head off potential off-topic notes ''before''
 they are written if it appeared before the editor instead of after.

 The second note ("In the editing area the Tab key...") explains how to use
 the editor, which is similar in nature to the third point up top ("You can
 enter text and code. Use php..."). Seems both of those would be beneficial
 to know before writing, so I'm not sure why one appears above and one

 That leaves only the GFDL notice to appear after the preview. In that case
 it can be a standalone notice instead of a bullet point that notifies the
 user prior to submission.

 As an alternative approach, have you considered populating the editor
 itself with placeholder text that communicates these notes while also
 demonstrating some of the shortcode usage? Doing so would alleviate the
 need for a separate bulleted list and cut down on the overall height of
 the section.
