Default Hot Spots - Pop up text

Very new to Dreamweaver - using MX 2004.
I can make hot spots that open new pages or link to files. But what I want to do is to hover over parts of an image and have some explanatory text show up.

Can I achieve this relatively simply in Dreamweaver?

Thanks for any help

you can use the alt tag to show a message or javascript mixed with dhtml.
don't think there is an extension for this kind of code in dreamweaver.
