I'd like a little text tag to appear when I hover over an image

I used to have a BBCode that did this but now it's not working and I can't understand why. I guess I must have altered it in some way by mistake without realising and then clicked save so the original code must now be gone.

I know that this code works for doing what I want because I just tested it on w3schools.com How can I turn it into a BBCode?

<img src="image url" title="text" />

I'm not allowed to edit my posts so if I think of something new to say, I have to bump. I really don't understand why both you and the person below think that I'm looking for an image to appear when I hover over one. I said clearly in the topic title that all I'm looking for is a little TEXT tag to appear. TEXT. I don't understand how either of you could think that meant I want another image to appear.

It's alright anyway. I got it figured out.

Code: [imgTag]{URL} {SIMPLETEXT}[/imgTag]

HTML replacement: <img src="{URL}" alt="{SIMPLETEXT}" title="{SIMPLETEXT}" />

Turns out that was my original code after all, and it works fine. It was just something wrong with the particular topic I was posting in. I had another unrelated problem with that topic as well tonight so I deleted it. When I tried the above code in another topic, it worked fine.
