Oh, right. Adding tooltips in every editable cells will be disturbing, IMO.

How about add a hint tooltip in "Edit" link in table's rows? Maybe some hint like: "You can also edit a field by clicking directly on a cell in the table.". Actually, we may add more hint to tell the users that grid editing doesn't work for BLOB data type, but the hint will be too long to be displayed.
