Yes, it is a little confusing.  I suppose I could use the Description to
achieve what I want, but really that should be used for search engine stuff
and be quite long.  Really what I want is to be able to specify the tooltip
text in the page that contains the link.  I would imagine something like

[[Main.FirstPage | Start Here "Click here to be taken to the first page of
the lesson"]]

So the page is FirstPage, the link says "Start Here" and the tooltip is the
"Click here..." bit.  Each serves a different purpose.  The page name is
site structure, the link text is for returning users who already know what
the link does and the tooltip for new users who need a little more info.
