Here is  a solution which works also in IE, and does not use css, but
relies on the browser to show alternative link text in a "hover" box.
I think most browsers will do this.

With the added markup and alternative $LinkPageExistsFmt a link
markup like [[target | text "tooltip"]] will show 'text' as link text
with 'tooltip' as a "hover tooltip". you need to use the double quote
marks "..." for the tooltip text.

Add to config.php

## [[target | text "tooltip"]]
function ToolTipLink($pagename, $tgt, $txt, $tooltip='', $suffix) {
  global $FmtV;
  $FmtV['$LinkAlt'] = $tooltip;
  return MakeLink($pagename, $tgt, $txt, $suffix);

$LinkPageExistsFmt = "<a class='wikilink' href='\$LinkUrl' rel='nofollow'
