Hans Bakker commented on OFBIZ-4941:

Of course up to you, but keeping it in the data model, would show it on every form automatically.
Perhaps think about solving this as was done with the internationalization of the seed entity

worked on.
> I started out using the OFBiz structure for help docs but after a while I needed/wanted
something more expressive.
> Here is what I wound up using for development:
>     Java Help System http://java.net/projects/javahelp/content
>     DocBook 5: The Definitive Guide
>     http://www.docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/docbook.html
>     http://www.docbook.org/xml/5.0/
>     DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide
>     http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/index.html
>     http://sourceforge.net/projects/docbook/files/docbook-xsl/1.77.1/docbook-xsl-1.77.1.zip
>     Help Master - FE for managing java help files. Best feature drag and drop TOC creates
TOC matching file folder structure. Convenient launcher for viewing & testing. http://www.halogenware.com/software/helpmaster.html
>     XML Mind XML Editor - Free Personal Edition is far better then editing in Eclipse.
download from http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/download.shtml
>     Tutorial - DocBook editing with XML Mind XML Editor. Worth going through http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/tutorial.html
>     Read Me First style guide from Sun (cost from Amazon 1 cent + shipping)
> Attached are some screen shots of the results.
> Every screen is/will be documented in a similar structure. This is as much for defining
requirements and testing as for help. More work but worth it.
> The screenshots show a Java Help format generated using DocBook XSL. This will likely
not be the final presentation format.
> Note the Performance Review screen shots do not match the trunk. There is a bug in update
screen and I did some clean up of labels and drop-down list. There are issues like this all
through the application so I did not want to get bogged down with patches at this time.
