I'm late getting in on this one, but a few things I've found:  I'm
running fixes 20500.  As for the original issue mentioned, I also get
no help text from the main icons in mythweb, and it just hides the
date/time...never noticed that before.  Other things like popups work
fine.  I get the same behavior in all browsers.

The javascript help_text function is supposed to set the test in the
help_text div, un-hide the div tag, and then hide the date/time div
tag (help_text_default).  From what I see in firebug, the help_text
div ends up with the correct text but a style of "style: display:
none" when you mouse over it, so somethings definitely wrong with
it...I haven't figured out what yet.  That functionality doesn't
involve any ajax or anything.

Also...just to avoid confusion...the json requirement in php only
applies to trunk...the fixes version doesn't use any of the json_*
functions in php.

By the way...I tried IE8 from my Windows thinkpad.  Other than the
main icon mouseover help, things seem to work, but I could only get
the popups with things like program information using compatibility
mode.  From what I've seen however, virtually _everything_ requires
compatibility mode in that piece of crap.
