Hi

Good advice Charles, I feel I'm on the verge of nit picking by adding to
it.

This is what the title="" tag is for :-)

Yes, I do this quite often and since title="" can be added to almost all
elements (everything but base, basefont, head, html, meta, param, script
and title) you can also use it without adding potentially additional
elements like div's, eg:

<p title="Breadcrumb navigation bar."><a href="/">home</a> / Current page</p>
