In my particular case, the information on hover was of little import - 
it was a foreshadowing of what they'd be clicking on, such that there 
was no loss of inaccessibility - someone could just click the link and 
get (even more) of what the hover was actually talking about.

With that said, of the four options I described, you probably most like 
the the <div> one with IDs. But where would you put those? Putting them 
right next to the text ruins readability of the main text, and putting 
them at the end of the page removes any sort of context.
