Create Entries beta : help button for HTML and Markdown

Title:
Create Entries beta : help button for HTML and Markdown

Area:
entries

Summary:
I suggest adding a help button (i) or link to help us with editing. If you have forgotten which HTML tags are allowed or how to write something in Markdown, you're currently out of luck on the beta page. There is not 'help with editing' link anywhere. I think it would be nice to have one (or two; one for HTML and one for Markdown).

Description:
A help panel we could switch to and from from without leaving the page would be awesome but links to the following in new tabs/windows would be great too:

http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=82 (What Dreamwidth-specific markup/HTML tags can I use?)

http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=260 (How can I use Markdown to format my entries?)

http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax (Markdown formatting and syntax)

http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=103 (What HTML can I use in my entry?)

I'm head-desking right now because I just submitted another suggestion for exactly this! I don't think there's a way to do a take-back on it, but yeah: this would be particularly helpful now for the incoming tumblr people!
