@cindex tooltips
@cindex balloon help
When a region of text is ``active,'' so that you can select it with
the mouse or a key like @kbd{RET}, it often has associated help text.
For instance, most parts of the mode line have help text. On
graphical displays, the help text is displayed as a ``tooltip''
(sometimes known as ``balloon help''), when you move the mouse over
the active text. @xref{Tooltips}. On some systems, it is shown in
the echo area. On text-only terminals, if Emacs cannot follow the
mouse, it cannot show the help text on mouse-over.
