Comment (by humdinger):

 I don't think this is a good solution. Some people may benefit from these
 instructions one single time, but everybody will have to live with this
 distraction in the top right corner for ever. Maybe having a "Help" item
 in its menu (or in this case context menu) that opens the corresponding
 page of the user guide is better. This would have to be done for every app
 of course.[[BR]]
 OTOH, this wouldn't work for most preference panels etc. which could use
 some explanation but usually don't have a menu. I guess we'd need a global
 help system that is triggered with holding a key while clicking on
 objects, either giving short context based help or at least offer to open
 the user guide page.

 Anyway, that's nothing to be discussed in a ticket...[[BR]]
