Yeah you can pass an html block into a macro like so:


What do you think? If it's useful I'll document it.

I'd love it if we could pass it as an arg ie

form.input(...., extra_info=<something escaped if not literal()>)

also while we're at it I'd also really like

form.input(...., help_info=<something>) that would give a (?) icon with a :hover {display:block} div - that make sense?

I'd quite like some general css like this

<span class="hover-for-help">[thing to hover over]

<div class="help-text">Help text</div>


This is for the qa extension but seems like a general need

.hover-for-help .help-text{


} .hover-for-help:hover .help-text{

display:block; position:absolute; padding:3px;
