Please don't be afraid by the "techy" conversation here. You scratched in

see: http://tiddlywiki.com/#TiddlerFields ... Be aware that it shows most 
existing fields at tiddlywiki.com the empty.html file has much less. 

There is the description field. It is already used in the plugin context 
and it's meant to be a whole paragraph, if needed.

Having a look to the TW source, imo the best field is "*subtitle*". It's 
used exactly in the way we would need it here. eg: 
$:/language/Modals/Download is a tiddler name and the "subtitle: Download 

The usecase here is: "Giving users the info they need, without confusing 
So for me that's exactly what the OP wants. And the field name imo makes 
sense too: *subtitle* .... What do you think?

have fun!
