Title="The words you want the user to see"

Hope that helps, there are some fancy javascript ways of making a more fancy version, but it has a couple of drawbacks... its javascript! :-D

Edit: sorry, i should mention that title is an attribute of the <a> tag, so do somthing like this <a href="index.cfm" title="Our Home Page">home</a>

No worries, It's dependant on what type of form you're using, if its a standard form, then you'll need Javascript, which i'm no good with.

If you're using a cfform which is FLASH based, then you'll need some ActionScript to do it for you.

If you're running a flash form, check out www.asfusion.com for lots of fun stuff.

Javascript you'll need to google about i think.
