This template produces a hatnote:

An example would be when a user searches for the emperor Achilleus. However, the search term "Achilleus" redirects to the page titled Achilles (as in the mythical hero) because it is considered more likely the user were searching for the very well known hero than a relatively obscure emperor. Now, at the top of this Achilles page you will (among other things) find the following hatnote:

"Achilleus" redirects here. For the Roman emperor with this name, see Achilleus (Roman usurper).

That text is this template in action.
