Tourtip is a system-activated flyout. The purpose of the tourtip is to inform the user of some new feature or section on the page.
A tourtip is open by default and must be explicitly closed by the user. Once closed, it cannot be reopened.

A tourtip example is in progress. Check back again soon.
For a real world example, you can see the pattern in action over on eBay Skin.
tourtip: the composite pattern as a *whole*, containing the following sub-parts
host: the element that hosts the tourtip
overlay: the non-modal overlay that contains the content related to it's host
tip: the tip content
expanded: the overlay state (true or false)
Overlay must contain a button to dismiss the tourtip.
Overlay must remain on screen until explicitly dismissed by user.
Overlay cannot be opened once closed without a full page refresh.
