Hi, 

I am doing a project and want to include text which when you hover over the word, a small image or small box with text appears giving more information. But I don't know what it's called? I have taken this bit from wiki as an example. Although these links just suggest clickable links. But I have seen the underlined in wiki show a little box of text or small image. I hope you know what I mean? I would so appreciate your help! Thank you, Jayne🤠

I haven't checked but they most likely use AJAX to load a piece of content from the database and populate a box with it. There is Javascript and server-side code involved, it's not exactly simple.
