tooltip dialog: add example of using tooltip dialog for help message on test page

people often ask how to use a tooltip dialog for a help message that the screen reader will speak. They also want the button to invoke the dialog to look more like a link. Add an example to test_tooltipDialog.html for this.

this is not critical and can wait since dante created the example on dojocampus (altho it is a bit different than the example in the patch). If someone has time to review, it could be included in 1.3.

(In [16527]) fixes #8248 - added an example of a tooltip dialog used for help that is invoked by what looks like a link. Similar to dante's example in but includes info about how to make a screen reader speak the text.
