in reply to Markup summary when posting/replying?

It could appear based on a user setting that could be turned off once someone knew there way around (and was past the point of not knowing about posting conventions).

Better yet, it could be turned off automatically. After a user posts <x> nodes, it can be safely assumed the user knows what he's doing. The only 'problem' is determining that x. Is it 1, 5 or 10?

    I'd personally like it user controlled, as many different sites have slightly different HTML restrictions - some you have to escape angle brackets within <code> tags, on PerlMonks you don't. I can't remember the correct syntax for the [id://node_id] or the ISBN tags, nor can I remember the &#091 and &#093 tags. Too many things to remember, but a little reminder at the bottom of the page would help sooo much.
