To show a tooltip on a reference, use the role hoverxref to link to any document or section.

Writing this reStructuredText:

This will :hoverxref:`show a tooltip <hoverxref:hoverxref>` in the linked words.

will render to:

This will show a tooltip in the linked words.


This new hoverxref role is an alias of the ref role and works in the same.
