    Hi there,

    These are called 'tooltips'
    If you Google jQuery tootips, you find plenty of sites like this one that should point you in the right direction.

    Of course, you don't need jquery to do this and Googling JavaScript tooltips works just as well.
    Or even CSS tooltips

    Personally I have used Walter Zorn's DHTML tooltips a lot and although not wonderfully aesthetically pleasing, they are very functional.

    If you have any questions about the implementation of any of this, let me know.

    Edit: re. your second screenshot, see here: http://jquerytools.org/demos/tooltip/form.html
