Sharepoint Pop-Up window from editform.aspx

On my editform.aspx I have several fields that need to be accompanied by a help pop-up where I can add a formatted paragraph or so explaing the field and what is required.
 
Does anyone have a recommendation as to how to do this?
 
In old ASP coding I use to use a tool called overlib that did a nice job but not sure if it would be compatible.

The description of the field will show underneath the field (instead of a popup).  So if you go in and edit the column and add a description you will see it on the form.
If you really want popups instead though you should be able to accomplish that using SP Designer, You would open your editform.aspx page, hide the original form webpart, add a new sharepoint control  > custom form > choose the list and the edit form, and then modify the fields to add the popup.

Will Java work on a SHarepoint site?
 
Will this work in a SharePoint ASPX

<script type="text/javascript" src="overlib.js"></script>

<div id="overDiv" style="position:absolute; visibility:hidden; z-index:1000;"></div>

Java does play well with sharepoint.... in SPD you can either modfiy the code directly or you can modify the onmouseover activity in the properties of the field
