Wikidot community administrator RobElliottRobElliott has discovered an undocumented feature that you can use while embedding images into your wikidot page!

The title attribute for [[image ...]], which I'm about to add to the documentation, allows you to specify extra information about an image, which is then displayed by the browser as mouse-over text.

Accompanying HTML for this is as follows:

<img src="happy.gif" alt="Happy face" title="Happy face" />

Here's the Wikidot equivalent:
[[image happy.gif alt="Happy face" title="Happy face"]]

And, in action! Hold your mouse over the image for a second or two until you see the mouse-over text.
