Not yet. But if you add an image and do not give a value for the alternative
text it complains and asks you to do so. Some day soonish I hope it will have
context-sensitive help, but I don't know if that is currently in a real plan
for spending time on it.

  Demonstrate has a meaning that show does not, namely that the user is
  learning, or more historically that the teacher has to 'prove' their line of
  reasoning, at a level suitable to the auditor. Show rarely has this meaning.

  for the present perhaps, Flash is a good example of show, shockwave of
  demonstrate.

  A bobby like tool that creates ideal coding, (rather than list possible
  errors,) does nothing to help understanding.


  It must be possible.
