A cool trick I learned when starting work on my blog is that you can do tooltips entirely with CSS and attributes inside your HTML.

For the uninitiated, when I write "tooltip" I mean the little black dialog box that provides additional information about something on hover. For example, the "discord" and "twitter" buttons on this website use tooltips.

Typically, these are done in Javascript. However, thanks to the CSS attr() function and wide support for psuedo-elements (::before and specifically) you can fairly trivially do it all with clever CSS.
