You could try Javascript formatting toolbar for perlmonks which puts the toolbar above the text box. You can enable this toolbar in your display settings.

    Yes but novices usually don't change their settings before their first post ...

      Indeed. I wish the formatting toolbar could be enabled by default, with a setting to turn it off, but alas, it is not so (yet).

        Yeah, the whole idea was for noobs, in hopes they may actually read it before posting. I might say put a brief on "how to format your post" with a button that leads one to the posting box, but I'm sure that'd be shot down as just a hindrance. However, perhaps it'd make sense if it was shown only for those who are either anonymonk, or first-time posters (or people with a monk level < N who have had consideration against them for improper formatting in the past).

        I've never seen the PM code nor its DB, so I would have no idea if such a thing was even possible (or at least reasonably feasible).
