this would leave form editing.

I wanted to link to help texts for fields in a large form, and show a
short version of the help with a link title tooltip.

As long as I stay on the side, the form stays filled.

I reformatted the form to show the relevant information permanently,
so I have no urgent need. It's now better than my original idea with
the tooltips.

But if there is no reason against it, and if it's not too much work, I
think it would be nice to have also anchor links to the current page
behaving like other links.

Thanks for your permanent effort to improve PmWiki, Petko!
