comment How do you make sure users know that there is a tooltip attached to something?
what extra information would you want to offer over a text? if there's a text, why not just the tooltip into the text?

comment How do you make sure users know that there is a tooltip attached to something?
when the user hovers above or clicks the ? icon the tooltip appears in a bubble. Another option is to show the tooltip in a fixed box on the screen, and it shows the tooltip the moment the user hovers over a field. You can get many more ideas here: uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2007/05/dynamic-help-in-web-forms.php

@SnakeDoc, the answer is sound as it gets. The explanation is very simple ("Social proof"), even if it's short. Note my answer does not rely on FB, rather just reinforces and clarifies the argument with a common sensible example.

comment Why would I use a validator when I can use a spinbox?
to be more accurate, there are spinners for touch interfaces (they tend to take the bottom half of the screen when the field is tapped).
