there should be some more textfields in the expert-field-template to make it look more important and expert-ish

for this reason there could be a pre and suffix field

I need this to put a zip code and a city name on one line divided by one space

Going to wait with this one - field group is a better and easier option actually to get this working.

I recently have the problem that i want to have a suffix like <br /> and &nbsp; after a field and only if it is outputted. i think this cant be achieved using fieldgroups

This is not going to change in Drupal 7.

I needed this so I wrote a patch (it's against 2.4, because that's what I have installed but it might apply against -dev)

It just provides two big textareas - one for prefix and one for suffix so that you can put whatever you like in there - either to add a single tag at the end or to wrap a field in whatever markup you choose.

I would put them in an extra key because this is kinda confusing.

A textarea, really?

Here is screenshot of the patch from #5.

This is now officially a duplicat of #2076897: Prefix/suffix

yannickoo, my use of #prefix and #suffix for wrapping an element is commonplace, both in Drupal and in DS and although I wouldn't normally do this across elements as I have done here, I was duplicating a practice used elsewhere in the same function for consistency. For that reason I'd suggest a separate issue and patch to change all usages of the practice, as irritating as that may sound.

And yes, really a textarea. Maybe with less rows, but definitely a textarea. That form is far too compacted as it stands - the classes and attributes fields are far too squashed in already.
