add a new system message between the edit box buttons and the template links so we can put charinsert in there.

Author: plugwash

Description:
this bug is based on a complaint at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_%28technical%29#Insert_special_character_box_should_be_closer_to_the_edit_box

right now the charinsert markup on en is tacked into the top of
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning Unfortunately this
places it below the lists of templates which is not exactly very conviniant.
Hence i request a new system message (empty by default) to allow placement
directly below the edit box buttons.

[[MediaWiki:Summary]] would be a good place for the special characters. Then they
are placed between the edit-box and the summary.

However, the wiki-syntax isn't working there. But maybe a developper can change
that so we can place <charinsert> tags there.

Now [[MediaWiki:Edittools]] is implemented. It's content is preserved if the
another user interface is selected in [[Special:Preferences]]. This is not the
case for [[MediaWiki:Summary]].

Use [[MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning]]. It's on the same place in every skin.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
