pop-up balloons

Is it possible to create pop-up balloons in MS Word? The same way you can do
on HTML pages? Example, "Place cursor over word to see additional information
on pop-up balloon"?

I am not sure if you can or if you cannot.

One alternative way to do it is by using ScreenTip. Press Ctrl + K (or the
Hyperlink button, or Insert -> Hyperlink). In the Text to Display, type in
the word that will be visible on the document. Then click ScreenTip, input
the text you want to users to see when they rest their cursor over the word
and click OK to return to the Insert Hyperlink dialog box. Finally, in the
Address field, type 'javascript:;' (without quotations).

Using 'javascript:;' as the target will trigger a warning if you should
click on the hyperlink. A better approach is to bookmark the text, then
insert a hyperlink to the bookmark, which is self-referential. Clicking on
the hyperlink is harmless (will not trigger a warning) and will not move the
insertion point. In either case, you may want to remove the Hyperlink
character style and/or apply some other distinctive style to indicate that a
ScreenTip is available.
