Note: There is no custom text added by this mod but the variable $text['icontitle'] is present within this mod.

If you want text displayed on icon hover you could, for example, add to the English/cust_text.php or the English-UTF8/cust_text.php

//  Added for Change Language Droplist
$text['icontitle'] = "Ancestral origin";
