-- Module to display an icon with a tooltip such as "Edit this at Wikidata" -- Icon will be linked to the Wikidata entry for the article where this is placed. -- This message is only displayed if a local_parameter is not supplied -- i.e. when called from a template, it can be coded not to display the message -- when a local parameter is in use, preventing the value form Wikidata being fetched. -- The qid of a Wikidata entry can optionally be supplied for testing outside the article. -- Usage: -- --
