Hi, I'm developing online help for a JAVA-based application. The UI contains numerous fields which I'm grouping in a table per page. The drawback is a long table. The same fields appear in read-only and selectable (for example, text box) views. I've seen a javascript that allows a link to a specific help topic from a selectable form field. Is there any equivalent for a read-only field? I'm trying to avoid creating a separate help link per field (clutter).

TIA, Carol Chung
