it would be helpful to have a way of including extra help, which may be
provided by a popup dialogue, mouseover, etc.
This has been implemented in a proprietary extension to HTML forms by the
JAWS screen reader (I believe the attribute used is called contexthelp),
and there is a similar feature in Xforms.
This allows authors to easily provide extra help in filling out the form
field without it normally cluttering up the page.
