In addition to the jQuery, there are other approaches to build a tooltip.

The easiest way is to use the pure CSS as follows:

Now CSS3 is available for most browsers. The following is also a good choice:
<a href="http://www.menucool.com/tooltip/css-tooltip">CSS Tooltip</a>

If you want a rich HTML tooltip that is cross browser compatible, use the following one:
