Popup title text on <TD> element

Does anyone know if it is possible to create like a mouseover popup TITLE on a <TD> element?  I do this with buttons, would like to do it with a <TD> element.

Button Sample:
<input type="button" name="Print"  value="Click Here To Print For Your Records"  onClick="Javascript:window.print();" class="ButtonBorder" title="Click here to Print Order Submit screen.">

When I brush mouse over the button, the Title Text appears.  Want to do this will a <TD>.  Please advise, sulzener

                        // gets note1 element
                        var note1=document.getElementById('note1');

            }

            hideNote=function(){
                        // gets note1 element

                        note1.style.visibility='hidden';
            }
            var a1=document.getElementById('a1');
            // shows note1 element when mouse is over
            a1.onmouseover=showNote;

Sorry if I wasn't more specific, but I'm looping thru a file and display columns/rows of data.  My goals is to display some additional data over the name when it is highlighted.  I guess I could do a transparent button and noone whould know the difference.   But I was hoping for something easier.  Any other thoughts?

> over the name when it is highlighted.
you mean when it's hovered?  and what name are you refering to?  is that just some text?  if so, you can use any inline tag:

<td>
lorem ipsum <span title="Hello">name</span> dolor sed...
</td>

GrandSchtroumpf, I tried your first recomendation twice before I posted this message.  I thought that should work. Apparently I wasn't testing the right source, because when I tried it again (after your post), it worked.  Sorry about the bogus question.  Thanks to all.  I did learn som things.
