Stefan, markers are not necesserily inline. At one of my sites, we use a
right floated block element to indicate that something is new. So this
kind of help text will not work... The marker however can contain some
help in itself in a title="" attribute, so that those hovering over it
with their mouse can get an idea on what it is.

This simple and straightforward patch adds the ability to define
different types of markers (while retaining the old default behaviour
of the new and required markers to look the same). Someone with enough
time on his hands might be able to partition the new marker to a real
new marker and a changed marker (since node_is_new() returns TRUE even
if nodes changed, and not only when they are new). This is the base on
which the new patch can be worked though.

Being able to differentiate between 'updated' and 'new' would be a plus.
 (Basecamp does it for example, and it has been suggested repeatedly by

Another usability improvement wou be to have a little helptext at the
bottom of the form which tell you something like:
