Target Release: 3.6.0
Priority: P3 (normal)
Summary: Drag handles aren't well explained in the example.

The example here: http://stage.yuilibrary.com/yui/docs/dd/drag-plugin.html

It demonstrates using the dd node plugin. The drag handle is an h2 element that says Drag Me Here. That's a good visual clue. The old example has a little x in the top corner to drag by, and that
was confusing since it appeared to be a close button. The new example failed to change this comment in the source: //Now you can only drag it from the x in the corner

Also, I think it's pretty obvious what happening by looking at the example, yet I feel like there should be at least a 1 sentence description of what a drag handle is and does.

Not sure if you know this (we need to promote this better) but the docs are all on Github and we accept pull requests for them :)
