You're lucky if you can get users to read the help text let alone
try to understand some arcane formatting they've never seen before.

It would be much better to put that text IN the input field and ask
the user to complete the URL. Then strip that text back out again
before saving the field.

Even better again to suggest a complete, default URL for that node
and asking the user to confirm it.
