replicate the page-edit experience

Editing via forms should work and feel pretty much like editing a page. Wikidot has tons of users who are now comfortable with the basic organization of the #action-area. Let's synergize that comfort-level, so that we can readily integrate forms into that overall experience.
- When editing via forms, show the existing page content at the top.
- Wiki fields should be automatically sized like edit-page-textarea, the field where we edit page contents. There should be abbreviated editor buttons at the top, and -/+ buttons at the bottom right to expand/contract the window.
- There should be a preview option.
Of course, users could modify these defaults with customized layouts. I like all the customization available with forms, and I sense it's possible for me to make this happen through _template layout and CSS updates — and I'd really appreciate help in making ours so. But I'm thinking the basic Wikidot editing experience should be a default setting.
