I have seen a SharePoint list (Custom list) where a text shows up, whenever a list is empty (only for some views). E.g. to inform users of the guidelines for the list.

How can this be setup? I can't seem to find where this has been set...

This isn't configurable within SharePoint by the end user. However if you have developer knowledge or a developer that can do this for you, there are various options such as jQuery. Please ask your question on Stack Overflow if you'd like a developer solution.

Seems like this can be configured in SharePoint Designer. Don't know if that topic belongs here, but I'll close this question :o) – noesgard Aug 10 '09 at 6:41
