In normal notes development, it is easy to provide help details to the user through field hints and Help description's.
 
In the Redwiki tutorial found at http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/ddwiki.nsf/dx/Building_an_XPage_web_application_from_scratch
 
The author shows a way to create "artificial fields" including help details. Then he uses those fields and surfaces them using dojo.Tooltip. (see screenshot) . This technique shows the power of dojo.Tooltip. However, it also shows that help is missing from Xpages controls. The ability to reuse current help descriptions and field hints would be a great timesaver for the developer and improve user productivity
 
Muhammad's approach is a workaround to provide missing functionality in xpages and it introduces the problem of having too many fields on a form. Imagine a form with 200 fields and then you need to add 200 more fields to create help information.....not ideal
