Hover Text for HTML

GOAL:  Add "hover text" when a mouse hovers over a certain word in an HTML webpage.  

<p title="Hover Text"> Word <p>



Hover over the "Word" above to see "Hover Text".  This is a very simple way of adding hover text using a native part of HTML:  the title attribute.  Note: You can use the "title" attribute with HTML text tags beyond <p> tag, such as <h1>, <h2>, <h3>.
