Tooltip demo 1.9pre

Forms with tooltips

1. the '?' can not be reached by tabbing.

2. Reading past, tabbing to, or accessing the form fields with quick keys 'f', does not read a tooltip (by design it seems).

3. Pressing the toggle button changes things.

a. The ? can still not be reached by tabbing.

b. In reading mode JAWS now reads '? Use JAWS key + alt + R to read descriptive text.'

c. Pressing JAWS key + alt + r does nothing

Custom content

1. No tooltips could be found using JAWS (under development?)

Tooltip: Make demos more accessible (and less stupid, in case of the forms demo). Fixes #7842

I'll leave this a fixed for now, though we may need to reopen. I've addressed the issues by cleanup up and improving those two demos. Especially the forms demo was rather broken anyway, that's a lot saner now. For the custom content demo I added an alt attribute to the map image, though it still won't be very useful, as it has the same text as the anchor itself.
