The Fragments functionality unlocks the potential to insert your own information in forms to help guide the user and provide extra functionality. One strategy that is especially effective in web based tools is in context help. That is to say that helpful information should be available to the user in immediate proximity to the user as they are completing the form. This is much more effective than documenting a process in a long PDF that must be opened separately and may interrupt the flow of the user's process. Pictures are especially effective in demonstrating a process and quickly conveying a concept. Here you can see how to embed diagrams in forms that are not intrusive and easy to access for users who want more information. The diagrams will show as small thumbnails in the interface until the user hovers over the thumbnail at which point the full image expands for reference. (The diagram collapses when not in use.)
Including Visual Elements in SharePoint user forms makes the user experience much more effective. When possible look for ways to show a visual representation of the process to users inline so that things are easier to understand.

Master-detail lookup width too short, how can I use this to enforce my own width?

Chico: the width usually depends on the content.

Has anyone else had problems with their fragments and pictures? Mine have disappeared in the last week. I removed the pictures off of sharepoint and uploaded them again and I still get the same result when I switch out the links.
