The following are tests, so I won't add them to the bar just yet, we'll see if they're used and if people like them:
Edit: Though tbh it's mostly a question of how it will look if they're used by a larger crowd.
Also this hightlights important texts, perhaps quotes from sources etc?
And this is so large cited texts won't have to clutter up an entire page:

Newbie or noob is a slang term for a novice or newcomer, or somebody inexperienced in any profession or activity. Contemporary use can particularly refer to a beginner or new user of computers, often concerning Internet activity, such as online gaming or Linux use. It can have derogatory connotations, but is also often used for descriptive purposes only, without a value judgment.

The term's origin is uncertain. Earliest uses probably date to late twentieth century U.S. military jargon, though possible precursor terms are much earlier. Variant forms of the noun include newby and newbee, while the related term noob (often spelt n00b) is often used in online gaming.

History

Its etymology is uncertain. It may derive from "newie", which is attested in U.S. and Australian sources of the 1850s and means a neophyte in a place or situation; alternatively, it may derive from the British public school slang "new boy" or "new blood", which is attributed to the same era and was applied to a schoolboy in his first term.

In the 1960s–1970s the term "newbie" had a limited usage among U.S. troops in the Vietnam War as a slang term for a new man in a unit. Its earliest known usage on the Internet may have been on the Usenet newsgroup talk.bizarre. The term is believed to have entered online usage by 1981.

Variants

Coming from an oral tradition, the term has variant spellings. Among alternative forms are newby, nubie, and "newbee" (e.g. Los Angeles Times of August 1985: "It had to do with newbees. I could be wrong on the spelling, but newbees are the rookies among the Blue Angels...").

Two related terms are "newb", a beginner who is willing to learn; and "noob" (often spelt "n00b" or "nub"), a derogatory name. "noob" was among candidates for the one-millionth English word selection by the Global Language Monitor.

If someone would like to contribute by making flag icons for languages/countries that we haven't covered but ought to, that would be much appreciated!

Off the top of my head:
- New Zealand
- Hong Kong
- Nigeria
- Various German States
- Various American States
- Haiti
- Madagascar
- Various Swedish Provinces
- Australian Aboriginal flag
- Bolivia
- Peru

In the future, it'd be handy to have alternate codes that don't require all the tag parameters to make a bare-bones table, but at the moment I am too gleeful to care.

Glee!

Even though it could be smelled that the two of them were eaten and butchered around as if the other ones had experience, I can obviously tell you two are eating peacefully without being disturbed.
