<a> HTML Tag
What does <a title=""> HTML Attribute do?
Defines the title of a link, which appears to the user as a tooltip.

Code Example

<a href="/" title="HOME - HTML Code Tutorials">Click to visit home page.</a>

The text of the title attribute is displayed as a tooltip in most browsers — it appears in a small bubble when the cursor hovers over the link. Originally, this was intended to be used to indicate the title of the linked document. This is still a good practice, but you may use it for any text which you think will be helpful to the user.
