Hi everyone,

We've made a number of changes to address the Inline Edit screen reader accessibility issue initially filed in FLUID-2652.   

Here is a summary of the changes that we've made:
-  Implemented an explicit save button at the end of the container.  
-  Added a tooltip to both the save button and edit field in display mode.
-  Added a tooltip on the edit field only upon edit mode via mouse or keyboard.
-  Removed the edit field from the tab order.   The tab order inclusion can give visual users the impression that the inline edit is not working with the keyboard as two tabs are required to remove focus from the component.
-  Unit tests to verify our additions and modifications.

Feedback is always welcome!
