Add text box for instructions / reminders to the page layout

Customization & App Building

I often find it would be helpful to post some instructions or reminders to the users on a page. Or to have a reminder flash based on data the user has entered. I have seen workarounds that use validation rules to do this, but that is not a good solution. This is more general than what is available on the field help text. It would be a block of text you can add to a page layout. It could display given certain conditions or be static.

These are the types of conditions I'd like to see solutions for:
1 - Reminder that the user needs to do something outside of salesforce before creating a new record or after creating a new record or...
2 - Explain in more detail under what conditions to select certain values or enter certain values
3 - To group certain fields together
4 - To remind the user the purpose of the section / groups of fields

And so on...
