Static Rich Text: What are the requirements for a URL to display the content on mouse hover over?

Figure 1

I'm trying to add a presentation to the UI that provides guidance to the users on the work item, best practices etc.  At present I'm using the Static Rich Text presentation, which brings me to the questions;

1) In this instance, the test URL is to a website.  Hovering over the link in this instance doesn't show a preview, so therefore what are the specific requirements to enable a preview to appear?

2) Is there a better way of doing this? 

Currently on 4.0.3, however if 4.0.4 or 4.0.5 brings improvements in this space, it would be great to know.

Were you following this guidance (from the 4.0.3 Info Center): http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/clmhelp/v4r0m3/index.jsp?re=1&topic=/com.ibm.team.workitem.doc/topics/t_including_process_guidance_web.html&scope=null

That said, this work item discusses an issue with this feature that is found in 4.0.3 but fixed upstream (though with the Eclipse client): https://jazz.net/jazz/web/projects/Jazz%20Foundation#action=com.ibm.team.workitem.viewWorkItem&id=244029 I also found several similar open work items, so it would seem to be an active space still. The work item does discuss that the source needs to be a Jazz or OSLC compact rendering (so it would not seem that it will retrieve HTML from an external location and present it in the hover)..
