     *  Adds a "note" to the form, attached to a control.
     *
     *  <b>Do not instantiate this class directly! Use the {@link Zebra_Form::add() add()} method instead!</b>
     *
     *  <code>
     *  // create a new form
     *  $form = new Zebra_Form('my_form');
     *
     *  // add a text control to the form
     *  $obj = $form->add('text', 'my_text');
     *
     *  // attach a note to the textbox control
     *  $form->add('note', 'note_my_text', 'my_text', 'Enter some text in the field above');
     *
     *  // don't forget to always call this method before rendering the form
     *  if ($form->validate()) {
     *      // put code here
     *  }
     *
     *  // output the form using an automatically generated template
     *  $form->render();
     *  </code>
     *
     *  @param  string  $id             Unique name to identify the control in the form.
     *
     *                                  This is the name of the variable to be used in the template file, containing
     *                                  the generated HTML for the control.
     *
     *                                  <code>
     *                                  // in a template file, in order to print the generated HTML
     *                                  // for a control named "my_note", one would use:
     *                                  echo $my_note;
     *                                  </code>
     *
     *  @param  string  $attach_to      The <b>id</b> attribute of the control to attach the note to.
     *
     *                                  <i>Notice that this must be the "id" attribute of the control you are attaching
     *                                  the label to, and not the "name" attribute!</i>
     *
     *                                  This is important as while most of the controls have their <b>id</b> attribute
     *                                  set to the same value as their <b>name</b> attribute, for {@link Zebra_Form_Checkbox checkboxes},
     *                                  {@link Zebra_Form_Select selects} and {@link Zebra_Form_Radio radio&nbsp;buttons} this
     *                                  is different.
     *
     *                                  <b>Exception to the rule:</b>
     *
     *                                  Just like in the case of {@link Zebra_Form_Label labels}, if you want a <b>master</b>
     *                                  note, a note that is attached to a <b>group</b> of checkboxes/radio buttons rather than
     *                                  individual controls, this attribute must instead refer to the <b>name</b> of the
     *                                  controls (which, for groups of checkboxes/radio buttons, is one and the same). 
     *
     *  @param  string  $caption        Content of the note (can be both plain text and/or HTML)
     *
     *  @param  array   $attributes     (Optional) An array of attributes valid for
     *                                  {@link http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/global.html#h-7.5.4 div}

     *
