      Description

      At the moment there is the @PropertyLayout#describedAs() attribute for providing help 'hints' to users. I am wondering if there could be added a more detailed help information being provide to a user pressing F1 key?

      More specifically to design a mechanism for help documentation to be navigated to (into) from the Isis Wicket viewer interface in a context sensitive way.

      Broadening this further still, maybe there is a good way to keep user documentation embedded within the Java domain object class files and to generate formatted user help documents in a similar way that Javadoc is generated?

      I've done a little research on this approach but cannot find an example of where this has been done, but to my mind it seems natural as a Naked Objects way to do it.
