<apex:outputText title="Put Some Text Here" value="{!yourMergeVariable}"/>

 

Try that.  Put the mouse over it and don't move it.  You should get a pop-up box with the text.

I think if you use the title= attribute you will get a box that pops up with a message when you hover over the field.  I don't know for what tags it works.  I've used it with apex:outputText.  I don't know if it works with apex:inputText.

I tried but I couldn't see the box you mention, and even I tried using 'apex:outputText', Do I need to add anything else?
