Hi Matt,

What I was wondering was whether something like this might be useful:

$ println(ReturnFunction.DocNotes);

The qty field passed to the ReturnFunction object should always be a
positive integer.  Do not EVER send a negative number even though this
is the quantity being returned.

What I have actually done is more along the lines of embedding user help

$ println(RadioButton4.RonHelp);

Press this radio button if you want to see fiscal year results.
Warning: will not work for fiscal years prior to 1642!

That a little clearer?
