so for example
%<nop>FORMFIELD{"ApprovedDocument" topic="Bugs.WebHome" default="Bugs.WebHomeApproved" }% 



this is the case irrespective of whether the field should be in the topic (due to the form selection), but isn't, or if there truly is no such field.

seems there is an alttext param that is not really consistent with the rest of TWiki, but i guess it'll have to do.

perhaps alttext should get defaulted to default?
